First Year Retreat

The First Year Retreat is designed for all students, Catholic and non-Catholic, to share in the journey of faith with their peers. The purpose of the retreat is to help first year students integrate faith and the various aspects of college life. It is our hope that attendees will feel welcomed to the Notre Dame community, meet fellow first-year students and most importantly, grow in their faith and their relationships with God.

Who can attend?

Any first year Notre Dame, Holy Cross College, or Saint Mary’s student
