“They devoted themselves to the teaching of the apostles and to the communal life, to the breaking of the bread and to the prayers” -- (Acts 2:42)
The Seekers’ Retreat
October 1, 2016 - One Day Retreat
North Dartmouth, MA
Too much going on?
Pulled in a million directions?
You’re not the only one.
In the craziness of life, it doesn’t hurt to pause and take a look at the big picture:
What’s important in my life?
What am I looking for?
Where does God fit in?
UMass Dartmouth Catholic Campus Ministry presents the weekend Seekers' Retreat. Find out how other young adults answer these questions; learn how faith plays a role in their journeys; and take the time to reflect on your own path.
Retreatants are invited to look at their lives to see where God has been, where God is present, and where God is calling them to be. [ Details and Registration ]

Coming to UMass Dartmouth or Know Someone Who Is?
Our Campus Ministry team, including our student peer ministers,, stand ready to welcome incoming freshman. We offer special high school to college transition programs that we encourage you to take advantage of.
On August 9-10, 2016, UMass Catholic Campus Minstry will offer an overnight program at Sacred Hearts Retreat Center in Wareham, Ma. This gathering provides an opportunity for incoming first year students to meet the campus ministry team, and to meet other students who will be attending UMass Dartmouth in the fall. You'll have an opportunity to explore the transitions that define our past, present, and future. Take time away to reflect with others and on your own, listen to the experiences of a young adult team as you prepare to transition from high school and home life to living on your own.
Incoming freshman who commit to participaton in Freshman 5 will be invited to arrive on campus early before the official move-in date. This will give them an opportunity to settle in and to meet other Catholic students. They will participate in the NOVUS program for our incoming Catholic freshman.
Freshman 5 is a five-week faith sharing program for UMass Dartmouth freshman. The groups meet weekly with members of our peer ministry team for five weeks. These groups may continue past the first five weeks should the students decide to continue meeting.
