Get away.

Retreat programs help to focus our attention on the invitation of God and our response to God in various aspects of our lives. Through a variety of programs and formats, Campus Ministry invites people to deepen their spiritual awareness within a supportive, affirming community. The retreat offerings aim to meet members of the Marywood University community in their particular interests or needs, and Marywood Campus Ministry provides a selection of retreat opportunities with different styles for promoting deeper communion with God and others.

ASCENT (Freshman Retreat)

The ASCENT Retreat is a retreat designed especially for first-year students.  This 24-hour experience gives students an opportunity to get off campus, meet other first-year students, explore their faith traditions, and reflect on their hopes and anxieties about their future at Marywood. Facilitated by upperclass Marywood students, this is a fun and meaningful way to begin your college experience.
