Also on the calendar for coming months, February 28 – March 2, 2014, the 3rd Cardoner Retreat will take 30 upperclassmen through the Jesuit Examen by staff and student crews. A 4th Cardoner retreat will take place over the weekend of April 4-6, 2014.
Then, over spring break, March 10-14, 2014, 20 people (including students, staff, and faculty) can experience the Montserrat Retreat at the Immaculate Heart Retreat Center in Spokane. This retreat is a silent retreat, grounded in the Spiritual Exercises.
There are many more opportunities to participate in these and other events.
