Retreat Experience

JPCatholic has a unique variety of retreats available to our students throughout their three years attending the university. From the rotating retreats with themes such as The Men's/Women's Retreat, the Audience of One Artist's Retreat and the Source & Summit Retreat to our annual retreats such as the Silent Retreat and our JPCatholic Into the Deep Fall Retreat - there is a retreat theme/style for everyone.

Annual Fall Retreat

The JPCatholic Into the Deep Fall Retreat is unique to our university because it is hosted by a team of 35 students who unite to prepare for the retreat with weekly preparation and formation meetings. The Into the Deep retreat experience provides a three-fold opportunity for our students. First, to encounter Christ in a new and profound way, second to set aside the normal activities of the week to re-center on Jesus and rest in His loving gaze, and finally, service opportunities for students to give of their time, talents, and person to serve their fellow classmates on the retreat team. By providing these quarterly retreats, led by the Student Life Team, our goal is to encourage the JPCatholic community to remain centered on Christ despite the sometime chaotic demands of our day-to-day lives.

JPCatholic happily partners with Shepherd's Trail Retreat Center in Jamul, CA for our fall retreat.
