Do you ever feel that life is too busy and chaotic? The Quest 48 retreat offers a break from students’ busy lives, allowing them to enjoy meaningful time with God and friends.

The upcoming Quest retreat is April 8-9. Freshmen and sophomore students can sign up with permission forms from Campus Ministry or online. This 24-hour retreat includes student and adult witness talks, small group discussions, and a variety of games and icebreakers.

“The Quest retreat is a positive experience of friendship, getting to know yourself and God in a stress-free, welcoming environment,” said Mrs. Nancy Devroy, Campus Minister.

Students often find Quest a helpful break from school and a way to spend time with friends.

“Most kids say it is a real stress free, positive environment,” said Mrs. Devroy. “It is an active retreat. Students are moving around having fun together. The retreat is also student led.”

Student leaders return to the retreat to help retreatants. “I loved Quest, and that’s why I became a leader, to give the experience back to other people,” said Sophomore Lily Smith.

Student leaders run small groups and activities, making it easier for retreatants to feel comfortable.

Sophomore Jack Liedlich was a student leader on a previous Quest.

“It was a lot of fun. I liked small groups and talking to different people,” said Liedlich. “Students can learn more about other people and how they share similar issues and can deepen their faith life.”

“It’s a fun time, and you get to learn more about yourself and others,” said Sophomore John O´Neill.
