A CSU Retreat is a pretty AWESOME and packed weekend. There are talks about Catholic stuff with clear explanations of why we do what we do. So, if you're a little new or just out of practice with your faith, don't worry. We'll clue you in to everything we're doing and give you lots of chances to ask questions. There's Mass, prayer, and small groups. You'll see some really funny skits. We also take time out for sports and games. There's quiet time for you to hang out by the water, or talk with friends, a campfire for making s'mores, and plenty of good food. Everybody likes something different about these retreats, but in all the years we've been doing them, we don't know of anyone who was sorry that they came!
Preference is given to current undergraduate students of FSU, FAMU, or TCC (ages 18-24), especially those who have never been on a CSU Retreat before. Applications are accepted first-come (applied and paid), first-served basis. We have a very limited capacity for out-of-town guests.
It's simple, just keep your eyes open for an application at any of the Church exits. You can also sign up at the CSU table in the FSU Student Union on Wednesdays, or stop by St. Thomas More and grab an application from the front office. Retreat always fills up quickly so turn in your application as soon as applications become available. You can pay for retreat online at www.fsucatholic.org/retreat; just be sure you turn in your registration form too! Registration forms should be placed in the envelope that is located on the Brotherhood Office door. It's located in the church, to the right of social hall, at the end of the long hallway.
You need to pack clothes to get through the weekend, shampoo & soap for showers, towels, bedding & a pillow. Also please bring a snack in order to contribute to the Friday night snack time! Also, feel free to bring a journal to write in, or a Bible!
Retreat starts Friday evening February 12, meet at the church to eat pizza, get directions & rides. Everyone heads out for a fun-filled weekend of experiencing the Lord! We get back from retreat on Sunday around 6 pm!
