Spiritual Retreats: L.I.F.T.

The Lasallians in Faith Together (L.I.F.T.) program encompasses all of Manhattan College’s spiritual retreats.

Each retreat opportunity offers something different to its participants, but all provide a quiet space for self-reflection and faith discovery. We welcome people of all backgrounds and experiences to join a retreat program and meet new friends who may share similar or different views on life. Retreats are typically held off campus, and many take place at the Empowerment Center which is located on a sustainable farm in the beautiful Hudson Valley. 

Experience joy, love, laughter, goodness, faith, healing, wisdom, friendship and good food at one of our L.I.F.T. retreats:
