Friends, Food, and Fun: Fordham on Retreat

If you ever find yourself in need of some rest and relaxation during the semester--and let’s be real, who doesn’t want to take a break from the city that never sleeps every now and again--then one of Fordham’s weekend retreat programs are perfect for you. 
Retreats have a variety of themes, but new friendships are always the result!
If you’re not convinced to go on retreat already, then here’s the final push: the food is excellent, with snacking opportunities abound! Spending time with friends old and new, talking about what matters most to you over a delicious meal in a beautiful doesn’t get much better than that!
Fordham students at the McGrath House of Prayer
Run by Fordham’s Campus Ministry, all of the retreat programs take place at the beautiful McGrath House of Prayer in Goshen, NY. Here, students are able to unplug from the constant flow of responsibilities and stressors of college life and instead put aside time for reflection, growth, and the development of new friendships with other Fordham students. There’s a wide variety of programs available throughout the school year, with each month presenting a number of retreats that revolve around a specific theme and focus: from year-specific programs to faith-based retreats, Men’s and Women’s retreats to social justice and LGBT-specific programming, there’s a stay in Goshen perfect for each Fordham student. Spend a whole weekend at the McGrath House or just stay for a twenty-four hour retreat; either way, you’ll experience growth and learning that will help you far beyond the confines of Fordham’s campus.
