Salt & Light Retreat

November 10-12, 2023

All are welcome to join us for this year’s Salt & Light retreat, where we will focus on the Liturgy and Devotions. Liturgy is the public work of the Church, directing us to join together as one family in prayer. Devotions are those private acts of prayer the nourish and deepen our relationship God. As the Constitution on Sacred Liturgy (Sacrosanctum Concilium) teaches that “the liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; at the same time, it is the font, from which all her power flows.” Such activities include the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and other sacramental celebrations; Eucharistic Exposition, Adoration, and Benediction; the Rosary; Stations of the Cross; and many others. 

Join us on this retreat as we explore the variety of ways we can express our worship, praise, and reverence of God through Word and Sacrament. Through student talks, reflection, and communal engagement with these devotions, we will explore this aspect of our faith. You’ll also have the opportunity to explore and reflect in small group discussions on faith sharing. 

Whatever your prior experience with Liturgy and Devotion, whether you are curious about, confused by, or deeply committed to these expressions of our faith, all are welcome! No pre-existing amount of holiness or knowledge is required, just a desire to know God better and to deepen your relationship with Him! So come, grow, learn, and enjoy friendship with Jesus and others in this retreat!

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