Retreats are offered each year for all members of the Villa community in order to intentionally focus on community, prayer, service, and spirituality. Designed to be a space for reflection, peace, and unity among peers, retreats are held one each year as a requirement. Mission & Ministry also offers optional retreats for those seeking more, see those below.

Optional Retreats

Pause Retreat

Take time out of your busy day at school to be still during the Pause Retreat. Come to the Chapel during any free time between 7:15 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., and find a peaceful moment of silence, reflection, gratitude, prayer, or creativity. The Pause Retreat will serve both to de-stress from being a busy student and to allow for deepening of your spiritual life. Snacks, peaceful music, art supplies, and reflection materials will be provided.

Nature Retreat

An afternoon of finding God in nature. Come to find peace, beauty, and wisdom in nature. There will be time for exploring outside and encountering nature as well as time for reflection and prayer.

“But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind." Job 12: 7-10
