Adventure Retreat is an outdoor, off-campus, low- and high-ropes course experience that provides students with the opportunity to make friends, set goals, encourage teamwork, overcome challenges, cultivate leadership skills, and have fun.
Facilitators lead discussions that help students relate the ropes course activities to their everyday lives and their relationship with God. Adventure Retreat is offered twice a year, during the fall and spring semesters.
Search Retreat is a three-day, off-campus retreat that allows participants to reconnect with themselves and explore their relationships with others and their images of God.
Search offers a safe space for students to reflect on faith in their everyday life. This retreat is led by past student participants and is an opportunity to meet new friends relax, reflect, and rejuvenate as a faith community.
Faith, Love, X-ploration (FLX)
Cabrini’s FLX programming offers opportunities to relax and reflect on a regular basis throughout the semester. The focus of FLX is to build a faith community, provide spiritual reflection, as well as to provide team‑building and leadership development.
Local service opportunities are available, such as making and distributing sandwiches for individuals experiencing homelessness.
FLX programming involves monthly, regular Faith-building opportunities such as Prayer 101 and Faith Sharing to cultivate faith on campus and in students’ daily lives. Student ideas and initiatives are welcome.
Rostro de Cristo Experience in Ecuador
Students travel to Ecuador each year to see the face of Christ in the people of Duran. During this eight-day experience students learn what it is like to live a lifestyle similar to the Ecuadorian people in Duran, most of whom live on less than $2 a day.
Students spend time visiting with families, community organizations, and after-school programs. Students live in solidarity with their neighbors in a faith-based community with evening reflections on the experiences of the day.
Project Appalachia in West Virginia
The Project Appalachia Immersion Experience to West Virginia brings students together over spring break to understand the effects of poverty while living and working in the community.
Students experience firsthand the social, economic and cultural aspects of rural poverty through serving and speaking with the people who live in the region.
Students live, work, and bond together and form lasting friendships. Participants come together in the evenings to reflect on what they have experienced.
Students are encouraged to relate their faith to the experience of those in West Virginia. Service opportunities vary depending on need and could include demolition, drywall, or flooring.
New Orleans Immersion Trip
This service-immersion opportunity sees students work with the St. Bernard Project in New Orleans, Louisiana to help rehabilitate homes damaged in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
Students live and work in the local community for a week during spring break while soaking in the culture of New Orleans. Participants will also take part in spiritual reflection and are invited to put their faith put into action.
