This contemplative retreat, based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, is designed as the culminating retreat experience for Gonzaga students.  Crafted specifically for graduating Zags, this five-day experience focuses on listening to God’s intimate movement in our lives.  Utilizing guided prayer exercises, one-on-one spiritual direction, and silent personal reflection, this retreat invites participants to grow close to God as they discern where life is taking them. This retreat will take place the week before the beginning of Spring Semester.

Have you ever wondered about the roots of the Sabbath (Hebrew: Shabbat)? 

It's great to learn about the gift of Shabbat, but is way better to experience it first hand through music, meditation, long walks around Bozarth Mansion and of course by hanging out with friends and building Zag community. Bring your hobby, a craft or a book (fun or assigned) for downtime.  Enjoy festive Shabbat meals with new friends and old ones, and come away with a deeper sense of the Jewish sabbath.

All are welcome regardless of religious background or ability to pay.

Be Encouraged, Empowered and Refreshed. This is a weekend of laughter, rest, quiet, prayer and good food. It’s about low stress, and deep peace. Your time is precious. Your energy is valued. Your voice matters. Bottom line: we know how much is asked of you and we’re not interested in what you can do.  We simply want to be with you.
