On November 9-10th, the Formation programs from Rutgers University, Seton Hall University, and Northeastern University came together for their annual Fall Retreat. This year we split by having men’s and women’s retreats.
I attended the women’s retreat with 50 other women. The theme of our retreat was “Trusting in the Father.” We spent our time together focusing on the dignity and identity that each woman is created with and the Father’s unique love for each of his daughters.
The speakers touched on some of the common struggles to experiencing God’s love fully, and how to grow in freedom in those areas. Finally, we talked about the relationship that the Father offers us and the blessing He offers us in our lives, which was both healing and fulfilling. Over the weekend, we heard three talks, had a powerful prayer meeting, and had a time to pray with one another to fully allow the Lord into our hearts.
Here are what just a few of the other women shared about their experience at this year’s retreat:
The theme of the men’s retreat was “Discipleship” and they focused on what it means to be a disciple of Jesus as a man. They had three talks, small group discussion, a prayer meeting, and a frisbee tournament. Here are some testimonies from the men’s side:
