This year, as we practice social distancing, the Interfaith Retreat has gone virtual!
Utilize the menu of reflections, videos, activities and readings in the newsletter below to explore "The Crossroads of Our Stories" and dig deeper into realizing your own self-worth and the worth of others through an interfaith lens. With a video introduction from Rev. Scott Adams and activities developed by students on the Interfaith Retreat Team, follow your own Interfaith Retreat, on your own time now or later this summer!
Next year's Interfaith Retreat will again invite Loyola students of all religious and non-religious backgrounds to attend an off-campus weekend experience where participants will engage in meaningful dialogue with other students for a time of sharing and learning. Over the course of our time together student leaders, participants and administrators of different faith traditions will share stories and reflect on their unique faith experiences. We will offer safe and empowering spaces of equality where all can freely express their truths and their needs, with the goal of celebrating religious diversity, while building bridges across traditions. This retreat will provide students with an opportunity to deepen their understanding of both the religious experiences of others and their own religious identities.
Retreat Leader Application Form
April 9-11, 2021
This retreat is offered to students at an introductory price of $35, down from the standard retreat fee of $75.
The registration fee for most retreats is $75. Some retreats are offered at the introductory rate of $35. All payments can be made by credit card, debit, Evergreen, cash or check (payable to Loyola University Maryland). The fee covers transportation, lodging, meals, and all other expenses for the weekend. The entire cost of a weekend retreat for one student is $190.00, however, Campus Ministry subsidizes $120+ of the retreat cost per student.
Full payment is due at least 14 days prior to the Retreat (some retreats require earlier payment). If you have not paid, you forfeit your spot on the retreat. $25 of your registration fee is a non-refundable deposit. If you cancel your registration by contacting the Retreat Director more than one week in advance, you will be refunded your fee minus the deposit. If you cancel less than one week in advance, your full payment is non-refundable.
Loyola believes that cost should never prohibit a student from experiencing a retreat. Generous donors provide scholarships for any and all students who require support to attend a retreat. If paying with credit card, you may request a scholarship by entering one of the Scholarship Codes below on the payment screen. If paying in person in Campus Ministry, scholarship codes will be provided at the time of payment.

25GIFT ($25 Scholarship)
35GIFT ($35 Scholarship)
50GIFT ($50 Scholarship)
65GIFT ($65 Scholarship)
Please note, submitting a registration form does not guarantee your spot on the retreat. Campus Ministry has a commitment to building community on retreats where students have the opportunity to learn, share, and pray with students from diverse backgrounds and identities. To ensure this intentional diversity, after you submit your registration, students may be placed on the waiting list. You will be notified to confirm a spot on the retreat.
