Day of Discernment



October 25-27, 2013

All senior students are invited to join Campus Ministry and Fr. Paul Coelho, SJ, for a Discernment Retreat.

Wondering what you’re doing next year? Come and spend a weekend reflecting on the time you’ve spent at Marquette and what’s next in your path with other seniors who are discerning the same things. “Discernment” is a process of becoming attentive to what we think and feel in relationship to particular choices, paths, or movements of the Spirit in our life. It is a very practical application of Ignatian Spirituality in everyday life. There will be opportunities for discussion, sharing, and prayer. Don’t miss out!

OPEN TO: All senior students of the Marquette Community.

On this retreat, you will find yourself:

Retreat Location:

St. Vincent Palotti Retreat Center, Elkhorn, WI

A short 40 minute drive Southwest of Milwaukee in quiet, farm country. The Retreat Center is on a small, wooded acreage with access to short walking paths. The Retreat Center itself is just like home. The main building is a refurbished home with many quaint bedrooms and corners to find for quiet prayer. It also includes a conference room with a fire place, dormitory sleeping for 30, and a chapel. The promise of home cooked meals by have always been the draw for this retreat!

Retreat Cost:
