LIFT: Lasallians In Faith Together - Retreat Program

Lasallians in Faith Together, or the L.I.F.T. Program, is CMSA’s new vision of the retreat program, encompassing all retreats offered both on and off campus. Each retreat is unique and find fullness in the grace and love of God. We welcome people of all faith backgrounds and experiences. Joy, love, laughter, goodness, faith, healing, wisdom, friendship (and food!) are among the many blessings we have all received on retreats.

All retreats occur in a quiet, relaxing location—perfect for reflection and contemplation—all while meeting new friends who share your interests. Come join us for an unforgettable retreat experience! All are welcome!

Available Retreats this Semester:

L.I.F.T. Kairos

Kairos is a brand new retreat at Manhattan College, one that has to be experienced to be believed. Join 11 of your fellow Jaspers as they lead this amazing retreat to celebrate and journey together.

Who Goes?

Kairos is open to any and all students wherever you are on your own faith journey. Kairos is a great first retreat experience for those who are seeking to focus on their relationship with God, self, and others in a supportive community of peers seeking to do the same.

What Happens?

The retreat is rooted in spirituality and welcomes students of all faith and spiritual backgrounds who desire to grow in relationship with God. Get ready for a weekend of great fellowship, amazing food, small group conversations, large group talks, and lots of beautiful music.
