The mission trip takes place June and July with a group of 25 Oregon State and Portland State students and volunteers to St. Lucia. This will be the final trip in a three year span to the small city of Jacmel. The primary goal of the mission is to support the languishing parish there through house visits, one on one encounters, vacation bible school and hosting an adult retreat.
We would like to invite all of you to this walk of faith, strength, and sacrifice as we spend three days traveling to the Grotto in Portland, starting in Salem. We will be traveling light, stopping each night at a church to rest and celebrate Mass. Come walk with us and our Mother! Enjoy a time with friends, a time for prayer, and a time dedicated to self-reflection. Click here for more information and to sign up!
When: Saturday, May 25th to Monday, May 27th (Memorial Day weekend)

Men's Annual Retreat
Women's Annual Retreat
The Annual Retreat is for sophomores and above who have gone through the Alpha program and are now seeking to deepen in their knowledge of the faith and strengthen their prayer life. It is an opportunity to step away from your day-to-day life for a weekend and focus on your relationship with God. This is a silent retreat, and you will have time to yourself to both look back on your past year of spiritual life, and to make a plan for the year to come.
