What is Koinonia?
Everyone in Campus Ministry is looking forward to seeing you
at Koinonia II!
The Koinonia Retreat is only going on its second year at our school
but it immediately solidified its place as one of the "do not miss"
experiences for students at Saint Martin's University. The retreat will
take place right on one of the beautiful lakes we have in our area.
Besides bonding with fellow retreatants and having free time to enjoy
being away from campus, you will hear stories from peers, staff and
faculty and be encouraged to share your own. Koinonia provides a special
opportunity for spiritual reflection and a break from the often hectic
and always busy life of a Saint Martin's University student.
This retreat emphasizes community--one of our core values at
Saint Martin's University. No matter how long you've been at
Saint Martin's, there are always new people to meet! If you want
to deepen your understanding of the Saint Martin's experience
and the core values that make this University tick, this is
great chance. And that's not to mention the fun you'll have
gathered with friends around a bonfire or diving into the lake
(if you want) on the polar bear dive!
When is it?
