Campus Ministry retreats
Retreats provide students with the opportunity to withdraw from the
pressures and obligations of our normal routines in order to experience the
love of God and the love of neighbor in the context of community.
Obsculta is Campus Ministry's signature retreat. It is a three-day
experience for upper classmen at Saint Martin's University. Led by a
team of students, faculty, and staff, participants enter into
reflections and discussions with each other and with team leaders. The
retreat is held at the Gwinwood Retreat Conference Center in Lacey,
Obsculta means "listen" in Latin and is the first word of the
Rule of Saint Benedict: "Listen carefully, my child, to my
instructions, and attend to them with the ear of your heart." During
this retreat, participants listen to themselves, listen to each other,
and listen to God, however they understand God. This retreat is open to
students of all faiths and no faith who are open to having a spiritual
experience in the context of a supportive community.
Other retreat opportunities are available to students throughout the
year at Lambert Lodge - a cabin the monks of Saint Martin's Abbey own
at Cooper Point on the Puget Sound. Contact the
Campus Ministry office for more
