Lenten Retreat in Daily Life



February 24 - April 6, 2020

On campus. Free. 6 weeks long. The Lenten Retreat in Daily Life is one-of-a-kind. Weekend retreats get all the glory—and they’re great!—but sometimes the best way to find God in day-to-day life is to go on retreat in day-to-day life. That’s where the Lenten Retreat in Daily Life comes in.

Retreatants come together for an opening prayer service and commit to at least 15 minutes of daily prayer. Each retreatant is assigned 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.




This retreat takes place entirely on campus. Opening and closing prayer services will be at the Chapel of the Holy Family; Spiritual Direction/Conversation will typically take place in your Director or Companion’s office, or in reserved rooms in the AMU.

Virtual Option

The Lenten Retreat in Daily Life is also open to distance learners, including those pursuing online degrees, student teaching or interning outside Milwaukee, or studying abroad. Distance learners will participate in spiritual direction via video chat, at a time that works for both them and their director. This option is shown on the registration form just mark that you are a distance learner.



Registration for the Lenten Retreat in Daily Life will open on Tuesday, January 21.
