Community

Connect will help you to meet a lot of Aggie Catholics, and we know that can be intimidating! In this retreat, you’ll have a chance to get to know everyone that attends, but we’ll also have small groups with discussions where you’ll get to know a handful of students very well. Your small group will be a part of a “House”, which will consist of 5-7 small groups in total. These Houses will be organized based on where you’ll be staying this year, so you’ll get to know people that live close to you!

In addition to small group and house discussions, we’ll have breakout sessions, a dance, a carnival, icebreaker games, a Ministry Fair, and more. You’ll also get to know the priests, sisters, and staff of St. Mary’s. This retreat will be led by current students at St. Mary’s who have been new students in your shoes! These connections and friendships will form a solid base of support (and fun!) for your time in College Station.
