Kairos Retreat

Kairos, adapted from Greek to mean "God’s Time," is a Christian retreat program geared toward deepening one's faith, identity, relationships, and connection to God's role in our lives. This retreat is an opportunity to find meaning in the highs and lows of your life. 

Kairos is a journey of the heart, mind, and soul. On the weekend, you will hear from your peers, be invited to share your own story, and discover a community of affirmation and companionship. Everyone has a story worth telling, and everyone is welcome to embark on this journey.

In a typical year, the Loyola Kairos Retreat is a three-day retreat held each semester at The Loyola Retreat Center in Flintstone, MD. This year, due to COVID safety protocols, the Kairos Retreat will be held over 2 days on campus in Alumni Memorial Chapel.  Due to space constraints, registration this spring will only be open to seniors.

Dates

Nov. 12-14, 2021 and April 8-10, 2022

Cost

The Kairos Retreat cost is $75. 

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.

Register

Fall Retreat Registration launches in September.

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.
