Caritas is a retreat experience that has helped over 1,500 people explore God’s love and voice in their lives through relationships with those around them. 

Are you looking to...

  • get away to reflect on your personal relationships and their meanings?
  • get more out of your faith along with other young adults in their mid-20's and 30's?
  • reignite your passion in life?
  • encounter God's love in a whole new way?

Join other young adults for a retreat focused on important and significant relationships - with God, yourself, and others.

This Catholic retreat, grounded on Ignatian spirituality, will be guided by Fr. Tri M. Dinh, SJ, a number of Jesuits, and lay ministers. It is open to all.

The retreat format integrates presentations, prayer, liturgies and conversations based on topics including:

  • Longing to Love and be Loved
  • Love Chooses Me?
  • Love and Sexuality
  • Love and its 10,000 Imitations
