With virtual classes and fewer of us on campus, we must look to answer the ongoing Vincentian question ,"What must be done?," in creative and courageous new ways.

To help us in this moment, the Division of Mission and Ministry invites faculty and staff to participate in our first Back to School Online Retreat, set to begin Aug. 31. Through this experience, you will gain spiritual support, easy respite and practical assistance from our wisdom traditions as you prepare for the opening of the year.

This online retreat contains new reflections prepared by our Mission and Ministry team, with content from six different traditions for you to choose from and enjoy. To enroll, please follow the link below. Beginning the morning of Aug. 31 and continuing for five days, participants will receive an e-mail with an inspirational written message, brief reflection and questions to contemplate.

Your time commitment will be modest, and you will be able to participate from the ease of your desk, laptop, phone or wherever social distancing may allow you to be. 

Registration is due by Aug. 26. Questions may be directed to Tom Judge, university chaplain.
