Retreats We Offer
Due to COVID-19, we are not currently offering retreats for the semester. When we offer retreats again, you may join us for LAUNCH, M.O.R.E. Weekend, Restless Hearts Retreat and other events.
LAUNCH: Sept. 18 - 19, 2021
Start your first year of college with a couple of summer days connecting with your future classmates at a nearby campground for some reflection, recreation and relaxation. Led by upperclassmen, LAUNCH is a great way for first-year students to meet fellow classmates from all years - but especially their own - at the start of their college careers. This experience is free of charge. First come, first serve.
M.O.R.E. (Merrimack Out-Reach Experience) is Merrimack’s most popular retreat. It is a special time for students to get away, relax and reflect on family, self, friends and faith. This student-led program is designed to deepen relations with other students and forge closer ties with the greater Merrimack community.
Restless Hearts Retreat
The Restless Hearts Retreat is a weekend of prayer, sacrament, and reflection. Inspired by the life and teaching of St. Augustine, this retreat is a chance for students to reflect on their own lives through the eyes of faith and in conversation with the great theologian and bishop whose spirituality is the foundation of our mission at Merrimack College.
