Campus ministry retreats encourage students to grow in the spiritual life. Some retreats occur over a weekend, others for just an afternoon or an evening. A few of our retreat offerings are listed below, but keep your eyes open for other opportunities throughout the year. If you have questions about any of these or suggestions for additional retreat options, please contact the Director of Campus Ministry, Anastasia Nicklaus at x8192 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Taking its name from the city where Jesus' disciples were first called Christians (Acts 11:26), Antioch is a weekend retreat for college students to experience true community. Antioch is a chance to get off campus and have time to listen to how others have recognized and responded to God in their lives, build relationship within small groups, pray together, and enjoy some good food and have some fun, too. Over the course of the weekend, participants come to a better understanding of what it means for a college student to be a disciple of Jesus in today's world.

Journey is a 24-hour reflective retreat for students who wish to take what happens on Antioch to a deeper, more personal level.
Busy Person's Retreat
Campus ministry is pleased to partner with representatives from the Dubuque Area Vocation Association to offer the Busy Person's Retreat. This retreat offers participants the chance to deepen their relationship with God and to balance many aspects of their lives. It is ideally suited for people whose daily lives may not permit a traditional retreat since it works itself into your schedule.
