Too much going on? Pulled in a million directions? You’re not the only one. In the craziness of life, it doesn’t hurt to pause and take a look at the big picture: What’s important in my life? What am I looking for? Where does God fit in? UMass Dartmouth Catholic Campus Ministry presents the weekend Seekers' Retreat. Find out how other young adults answer these questions; learn how faith plays a role in their journeys; and take the time to reflect on your own path. Retreatants are invited to look at their lives to see where God has been, where God is present, and where God is calling them to be. Mark your calendars. Coming Feb 28-Mar 2 at Cathedral Camp in East Freetown. Registration is open and UMass Dartmouth students save 75% off the regular non-student rate! Visit our website for details and to register.
