The CCMA Campus Ministers Retreat, Rest and Renew is designed to help the new or experienced campus minister reflect on the year gone by and be renewed in your faith.
Spend 24 hours with fellow campus ministers as we finish the academic year and be renewed. Our retreat presenter will be Fr. Ray Cook, OMI, Chaplain at the Catholic Student Center at Rice University. The ancient practice of keeping Sabbath is counter-cultural and yet essential to the spiritual life of campus ministers. This retreat is the perfect way to look back at the academic year and let the Lord bring peace to our busyness and hectic schedules.
Participants will have opportunities for:
- Fellowship and discussion
- Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
- Three workshops related to holy rest and personal renewal
- Quiet time alone to process the year
