Awakening is a Catholic retreat held at many colleges and universities across the country, as well as in a number of dioceses. It is a weekend retreat where young adults grow closer to God, make new friends, and experience spiritual renewal.
The retreat, though focused on Catholic teachings, is open to people of different denominations who wish to experience the Christian message of hope and love. Awakening invites young adults to experience God’s unconditional love through a variety of talks, prayers, songs, fellowship, and group discussion.
CYAM offers a retreat for young adults who aren't in college (whether you never attended or already graduated). As CYAM staffer Ruby Fuentes explained, "We are aware that college may not be an option or a choice for everyone, or perhaps some folks missed the opportunity back in their college years - but still wish to experience a retreat with other young adults... here's a wonderful opportunity!"
Catholic Campus Ministry hosts Vaquero Awakening for college students in our diocese. Visit your Campus Ministry website for more information about dates, times and registration.
