Join your classmates in Campus Ministry’s annual Connections Retreat for freshmen. Spend a weekend or a full day having fun, growing in faith, and learning about life at PC.  Take a break from the busyness of starting college, and form new friendships, and reflect on the role of God in your life.  Make great connections with upper-class student leaders and other new students!

Enjoy a weekend of canoeing, s’mores around a bonfire, time for prayer, a fresh outlook on college, and great food.  Weekend retreats are in Rindge, NH and the daylong retreat is just a short drive from campus in RI.  Transportation and lodging are included.  It’s all free, but space is limited, so sign up early.  You won’t want to miss it! 

The dates to choose from are:

Connections I :  September 14 to September 16, 2012 (Rindge, NH)

Connections II :  September 21 to September 23, 2012 (Rindge, NH)

Day of Connections :  TBA

Registration will be available June 1st at the Campus Ministry Retreats Site.  It’s all free, but space is limited, so sign up early.  You won’t want to miss it!

Thoughts from the Class of 2011…

“My freshman year would not have been the same without Connections.”

“I feel like I have a home at PC now.”

“I realized this weekend that I made the right choice coming to PC.”

“This retreat helped me realize more about the person I want to become.”

“Through participating in this retreat, my transition into college became much easier.”

“I met so many people who really cared about me as a person.”

“Connections gave me new ideas about college, friends, faith, and life at PC.”

“It was great to meet older students and hear their stories. I’m more confident now that I can make it through the challenges that college will bring.”
