    Campus Ministries Returns to Chapman Lake for the Connections Retreat

    September 29, 2021
    By: Peter Sims ’22, Marketing Major, Member of the Connections Team 2021

    Once again, the Office of Campus Ministries sponsored the Connections Retreat for first-year students. This year, the retreat was held at a special location, one where we did not have the opportunity to go last year due to COVID: The Chapman Lake Retreat Center!

    The team this year was made up of previous Connections leaders who did an amazing job leading two overnight retreats, which were held over the course of one weekend in mid-September. The theme song chosen for this year was Lean on Me, which really emphasized the idea of making “connections” and being able to lean on those people when you need them.

    Connections featured witness talks, group prayers, fun ice breaker activities, shared meals and small group discussions.

    “This retreat was an eye-opening and spiritual experience," said retreatant Sara Fusco ‘25, "and I think I and all the other people here are glad to have made some great new friends who we can ‘lean on.'”

    Fusco said that her favorite part of the retreat was the sing-along by the bonfire.

    The retreatants were able to dive a little bit deeper into their faith and were given a taste of what our Campus Ministries’ retreat program has to offer as well as what it means to be a Royal for and with others.
