Salt & Light Retreat

February 19-20, 2021

Get ready for Lent in the best possible way on this year’s Salt & Light retreat, which will focus on Mary and the Communion of Saints, those holy and human people who challenge, inspire, and encourage us in Christian faith and witness. This retreat will emphasize both canonized, famous saints as well as the everyday saints in our own lives who model being disciples of Jesus in their particular, concrete circumstances.

Through student talks and prayers, Salt & Light will give you an opportunity to walk, learn, and absorb the experiences of both fellow students and saints throughout Christian tradition. You’ll participate in prayer experiences like the rosary, Liturgy of the Hours and Mass, and you’ll have a small group with whom to reflect on your own perspective on faith and life.

Whether you’re curious about, confused by, devoted to or intrigued with Mary and the Saints, no pre-existing amount of holiness or knowledge is required! In fact, many of the apostles themselves had little or no religious knowledge, just a desire to take a leap to know and serve God better. So come, grow, learn and enjoy the friendship of others on this community retreat.


Open to:
Students of any and all faith traditions, both undergraduate and graduate, of the Marquette community.


This retreat will be held in person, on campus. If circumstances change, we will move to a virtual format.

  • Friday, February 19: 5:00-9:00 pm
  • Saturday, February 20: 10:00 am-5:00 pm, ending with an optional Mass at 5:00 pm.


Free! Friday dinner, Saturday lunch, and all materials will be provided.

Registration for the Salt & Light Retreat is now closed.
