CCU Silent Retreat Information
The CCU Silent retreats are a unique experience for CCU students. It is open to all CCU students, and CCU has generously provided a scholarship for 8 students to attend the retreat. What this means is that students will pay $190 for the four-day, three night retreat. Dr. Ray Mitsch leads these retreats, and serves as spiritual director for the group of students who attend.
The group leaves CCU on a Thursday evening, and returns to CCU after lunch on Sunday. Transportation is provided for the group.

Each evening of the retreat, the group gathers to debrief their observations and insights they have had during their time of solitude and silence each day.
