Busy Person’s Retreat 2019
September 22-26 we will begin a special kind of mini-retreat at Newman called a Busy-Person’s Retreat. It is just that – a retreat for busy people in the midst of a busy week! This is how it works:
We have Religious Sisters and Religious Priests coming to visit us at Newman for the week. They will each partner with a handful of students who they will meet with individually for 30-45 minutes each day next week.
After meeting with your spiritual director, they might have a few questions for you to reflect on, or a bible passage to pray with, or something they suggest for your prayer time. And then sometime, in your regular busy day, you devote about 20-30 minutes in prayer or reading or journaling. And then come back the next day to meet with your director again.

Other ways to retreat from the daily grind to find Christ at the center of your life.
Spiritual retreats create space for us to invite (or re-invite) Christ to be the center of our lives. Taking time away from school, work, social media or your cell phone can be a welcome “calm” in the storm of responsibilities that sometimes pull our focus away from the Lord. Attending a spiritual retreat can help you refocus, recharge an refresh your priorities. Consider signing up for one this semester!
Busy Persons’ Retreat
Busy Person’s retreats are for…busy people! Section off about an hour a day – 1/2 to meet with a spiritual director, 1/2 for personal prayer and reflection, and get together at the end for a delicious supper and some fellowship with other retreatants. Each Busy Person’s retreat invites 6-10 trained spiritual directors to Kirksville to meet with retreatants and set personal spiritual goals together, in the midst of busy life! So, you don’t have to take two days out of town, you can pencil in some spiritual growth on your own time.
Busy Persons’ Retreat for 2018 is TBA.
New Student Retreat
New Student Retreat is a great way to meet other students who are brand-new to Truman’s campus. This opportunity to bond, prepare for your first year here spiritually, and learn from other students is a great way to kick-off your first year of college.

Council retreat is provided for the Newman Council as a way to plan, prepare and grow connected to the other members of council and your committee. This retreat is offered in the fall, and is limited to council members. It takes place in Edina, MO and is a wonderful bonding experience, tying all of our work back to God’s will for the center. If you’re not on the council – consider joining!

Mens & Women’s Retreats
Mens & Women’s retreats are hosted by the men & women’s fellowship groups. These retreats provide opportunities to get-to-know ladies & gents while growing in your understanding of what it means to be a man or woman of Christ. The men usually camp-out, the women usually retreat in town, both are a great opportunity to forge deep friendships and learn more about your identity in Christ.
