Over the weekend, fourteen students joined University Ministry staff for the Emmaus Retreat. The retreat offered a contemplative experience for students to listen to the God in their hearts.

Participants were encouraged to quiet themselves and find God in the silence of their hearts. They were granted an entire day in silence, praying with various contemplative forms of prayer such as Ignatian contemplation, Taize prayer and a labryinth. The Emmaus Retreat occurs each January.
