Catholic Illini Koinonia Weekend

October 4-6, 2019 (NFK 140) 

Join us on the October Koinonia Weekend, October 4-6!

This 2-night weekend away invites you to take a break from campus life and discover peace of mind, freedom of heart, and an amazing community of love and friendship. 

By the end of the weekend you'll leave with:

  • a toolkit to: get through campus life's ups & downs, find peace, and manage stressful times, 
  • authentic, meaningful friendships that often last a lifetime,
  • a joyful community ready to support you
  • a new experience of God's love for you and the peace and joy found within our faith.

This weekend is for you if:
  • you are searching for authentic friendships or a community where you belong 
  • you feel like the semester hasn't gotten off the ground the way you wanted it to, or just feel like you're stuck in a rut 
  • you're just beginning to explore your faith, or are wondering how faith can fit into your college experience
  • you want to learn (or relearn!) the basics of the faith.

The weekend begins at 4PM Friday and concludes Sunday early afternoon. Transportation, meals, and lodging provided. Alternate transportation is available for those with late classes on Friday.

Thanks to the generosity of alumni donors,
the October Retreat is FREE for all registrants.
