Retreats are an opportunity for an individual to spend time in contemplation and prayer so that they can rekindle and deepen their relationship with God.  In addition, a spiritual retreat creates an atmosphere that allows students to leave behind the stresses and distractions of college, and embark on a series of both spiritual and social activities which bring the individual closer to fellow students and themselves, and ultimately, to God.



CSM offers a number of retreat experiences for students over the course of the academic year, including our First Year Retreat for incoming first year students, held during the first few weeks of classes, our spring and fall retreats, put on for the entire community midway through each semester, other themed retreats (in the past, these have focused on aspects of the Faith such as Mary, and Vocations), and the Diocesan Encounter With Christ retreats, held each spring.
