Walsh Jesuit Retreats

Campus Ministry offers diverse and dynamic retreat programming for students in each of the four years at Walsh Jesuit. Experience God through the Eucharist, prayer, nature, community building, service, meditation, relaxation, and fun. Please contact the Campus Ministry department with any questions.

The cost of each individual retreat will vary depending on many factors. Cost, however, should never prevent a student from attending a Campus Ministry sponsored retreat. Financial aid through the “Xavier Fund” is always available to those who qualify.
