Lenten Retreat in Daily Life

February 15 - March 29, 2021

God is always working in our lives, and this year there may be even more to reflect on than usual. The Lenten Retreat is a perfect opportunity to start, reboot, or dial in your prayer and relationship with God, all while talking with a spiritual guide and looking ahead to Easter. The retreat is simple, but the effects are lasting.

Retreatants come together for an opening prayer service and commit to at least 15 minutes of daily prayer. Each retreatant is matched with a Spiritual Companion or Director who you’ll meet with weekly to talk about how both your prayer and your life are going. At the end of the retreat, everyone regathers to reflect on how the retreat has produced fruit in their lives.

That’s it. But it is amazing what can happen through regular daily commitment to spiritual growth. Retreatants report everything from a steady deepening of faith to a reclaiming of silence in their lives to truly transformative experiences.

Come on the Lenten Retreat in Daily Life and see what God has planned for you.

Open to:
All students, both undergraduate and graduate, of the Marquette community.


The Lenten Retreat will take place wherever retreatants find themselves. In addition to on-campus students, the Lenten Retreat in Daily Life is also open to distance learners, including those studying from home, pursuing online degrees, student teaching or interning outside Milwaukee, or studying abroad.

All spiritual direction will take place online, as will the group opening and closing prayer services. Participants can opt to receive either a hard copy or electronic copy of the Lenten Retreat in Daily Life booklet.


  • Opening Prayer Service: Monday, February 15, 4 pm
  • Spiritual Direction/Conversation: Once per week for four weeks at a time that works for both you and your Direction/Companion.
