Art Retreat


The Art Retreat is a three day, two night, elective retreat whose purpose is to examine the ways that artistic expression can serve as a pathway to increased knowledge about the self, increased knowledge of the transcendent, and a deeper level of participation in the world around us. This retreat welcomes different forms of artistic expression, including the visual arts, poetry, movement, music, and acting.

Prerequisite: To attend the Art Retreat, a student must have a particular interest and/or regular practice in the arts.  

Information on the 2020-21 Art Retreat is forthcoming.

For questions concerning the Art Retreat, please contact Mr. Brian Gilmore, Campus Minister, at (314) 269-2130 or


"This retreat helped me feel more comfortable expressing myself and getting over my fears of performing in front of my peers. I learned to find beauty in other art forms from others."

"I learned that God does in fact work through me, through my art. That's something I've never really considered."

"The Art Retreat gives you an opportunity to escape from the busy and noisy world and spend time in peace and creativity."
