Retreats are available for students to deepen their faith life and spirituality. Campus Ministry sponsors the Stonehill Encounters Christ Weekend, a Senior Retreat, Women's & Men's Retreat and less formal opportunities to discuss faith issues and share prayer.

The Senior Retreat

This is a wonderful opportunity for our seniors to go away for a weekend, reflect upon their time at Stonehill, and prepare themselves for their last semester. This year's retreat is on January 23-25, 2015 at Ender's Island. You can download the retreat form here.  Please return it to Campus Ministry by January 19th.  Contact Campus Ministry with any questions.

The Encounter Retreat

The Encounter Retreat is Stonehill's most popular retreat. The retreat takes place at a Camp on Cape Cod in November, and again in February. The retreat is organized almost completely by students. The team is made up of ten retreat leaders, 2 MC's, and a Campus Minister.

The students give all of the talks, prepare the reconciliation service, organize the music for liturgy, lead small and large group discussions, and have fun at the same time. You will meet wonderful people, you will learn about yourself, you will recognize the importance of Christ in your life, and you will have a great weekend away from Stonehill. Information about the Retreats comes out in mid-October, and in mid-January.

Women's Retreat

In its fourth year, the Women's Retreat at Stonehill creates a space for students and employees to explore the spiritual dimensions of being women at Stonehill through the lens of the Catholic faith.  The Women's Retreat offers an opportunity for women to come together in a spiritually nourishing environment to discuss women's issues through a holistic experience which engages the essence of being feminine. Working closely with the Moore Center for Gender Equity and the club Women's Health and Empowerment Now! (WHEN) the Office of Campus Ministry is proud to offer an inclusive and exciting opportunity for women.  For more information please contact MaryAnne Cappelleri.  Also, anyone interested in joining the interfaith Women's Spirituality Group, which meets weekly throughout the year to discuss what it means to be a woman of faith at Stonehill, can contact MaryAnne as well.

Men's Retreat

2015 is the kick-off of our Men's Retreat at Stonehill College!  This March, Stonehill men will take time away to be with one another, away from all the pressures of the world, to actively seek what it means to be a man following in the footsteps of Christ, the perfect man.  The retreat will take place March 20-22.  Keep on the lookout for more information.  If you have any questions, contact Deacon Tim Mouton, CSC
