It's time to retreat, y'all!

The Statewide Spring Retreat unites Catholic college students from throughout the Diocese of Jackson for a weekend of faith and fellowship. This includes students from Ole Miss, Millsaps, Delta State and THAT SCHOOL DOWN SOUTH!

This year, the retreat will be held Feb. 7-9, 2014 (Friday -Sunday) at Holmes County State Park in Durant, MS (about 90 miles south of Oxford off I-55).

The theme is "Can You Drink the Cup?," with the talks and reflections based on the book by Father Henri J. M. Nouwen.

You're encouraged to sign up early. The deadline to register is Sunday, February 2, 2014.

The cost is $40 per student for the weekend, which covers your housing, meals and a retreat t-shirt.

It's easy to register!
1. Print out and complete the sign up form (click here to download the retreat application). EDIT: GoogleDocs has been acting weird, so we've attached an image of the application below for easier downloading in case you're not able to download the pdf version on GoogleDocs!
2. Turn it in to Brad Noel or to Terry Richmond at the St. John's Parish Office (416 South Fifth Street - just behind the church).  Checks may be made payable to "St. John's Campus Ministry." 

Scholarships are available for those who want to participate but cannot afford to do so -- just talk to Brad or Father Joe and we'll be happy to assist you!
