Retreats

Students are offered a variety of retreat experiences each year through Catholic Campus Ministry. Our campus ministry at WCU organizes one retreat each semester for our students; generally a beach retreat in the Fall and a more local retreat in the Spring here in the NC mountains.

In addition, we participate in Diocesan college events, including the College Discipleship Retreat hosted in Black Mountain, NC, which will be in November 20-22, 2020, and the Give Your Heart Away service retreat in Hickory, NC, in February 2021 (dates TBD).

Fall 2020 Retreats

Due to ongoing concerns about the COVID-19 coronavirus, the Diocesan College Discipleship Retreat scheduled for November 20-22 has been cancelled.

As of August 22, we are still planning to hold our fall beach retreat this Oct 9-11, as a smaller leadership retreat for our student peer ministers, both to allow for social distancing in the retreat house as well as to limit participation to those students already exposed to one another. We regret that we are unable to open our fall retreat to the student body at large at this time.

Please be attentive to our weekly e-newsletter, as well as our Facebook Page and Group for future announcements on how COVID-19 may impact these events.
