The Mater Dei retreat program gives students the opportunity to examine and deepen their faith surrounded by a community of their peers. As retreatants, the students are involved in personal reflection, group sharing, prayer, community building activities and the planning of the liturgy. The theme of the retreat is centered on the scripture readings for the day and is supported by all aspects of the retreat. Retreats are voluntary and student or alumni directed. The class level retreats build in length and depth. Twilight retreats are offered on an as needed basis. All are invited to pray for retreatants, and/or serve as chaperones and support persons for the team leaders.
