(Retreatants at St. Thomas University after a fun, spiritual day at the annual Latinx Retreat)
Since 2015 we have gathered Latinas/os from CSB/SJU, St. Thomas and St. Catherine's University for a 1 day retreat hosted on one of the campuses. These retreats are planned and led by students. True to our mission the retreat is planned and celebrated in the Latinx traditioin. The day is spent listening to inspiring talks, conversations and prayer experiences.
Latinx Retreat will be on March 13th, 2021.
- "Campus Ministry has done an amazing job at creating events and programs for the Latinx community that deepen our faith. It gives us a safe, familiar platform to further spiritually enrich our lives with other peers."
