The Office of Campus Ministry promotes spiritual well-being and growth by offering students retreat opportunities as a time away for reflection and renewal. All students of all backgrounds are welcome to participate. If interested please contact the Campus Ministry Staff. Please note spaces are limited.
As you begin your new journey at Elms we welcome you to be a part of the First-Year Retreat. The day retreat is a great opportunity to reflect upon life at Elms. You will be able to meet fellow class members, enjoy great talks by upperclassmen, and explore topic relevant to the first-year experience.
How do other small, residential, Catholic colleges maintain their identity? Come and find out! Students who are actively involved in the many ministries offered at Elms are welcome to attend this overnight, weekend retreat with students from 9 or more other colleges in the Northeast at the beautiful Saint Anne's Shrine in Isle La Motte, VT.
We understand that the hectic pace of college can often leave college students with the need to rest and reflect in a sacred space. We invite college students to join us for a weekend retreat. On this retreat, we explore the retreat season theme as well as offer a variety of workshops to strengthen the faith of college students through learning and small-group discussion. The retreat is centered on the liturgy of the Church and enhancing the experience of community among college students.
We are a private Catholic coeducational liberal arts college founded in 1928 by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Springfield, Massachusetts. Elms College is located in Chicopee, Massachusetts, and grants associate's, bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees.
