Rattler Awakening Retreat
About the Retreat
The Rattler Awakening Retreat is a Cursillo-based retreat, which invites students to explore their faith lives in the context of a caring community. The retreat is organized by students with members of the St. Mary’s University Ministry Pastoral Team overseeing different aspects of the program.
Students will explore the love of God, the crucial interplay of faith in our daily lives, the virtues of the Christian life, and the importance of community. This is done through a series of presentations with the opportunity for personal reflection and small group sharing.
Students who attend the retreat leave with a healthy sense of self-worth, feeling affirmed by others, and a deep sense of the love of God.
