In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus proclaims, “You are the salt of the earth … You are the light of the world.” Our call to discipleship, to spread the flavor and light of Christ to society, is the foundation of the new Salt & Light Retreat. Developed with a view toward the Triduum, this weekend will offer students a retreat experience steeped in the Catholic tradition as we explore the sacred time from Holy Thursday to Easter Sunday. Through a variety of group discussions, faith sharing activities and ritual celebrations, we will engage critical questions such as: how do we become a Eucharistic people? What does it mean to die and live with Christ? In what ways can we incorporate the Easter joy into our lives today?
Students of any and all faith traditions, both undergraduate and graduate, of the Marquette community. Registration is now open.
$50, covers transportation, food and lodging.
