Held twice each fall semester, the 24-hour Escape Retreat is designed for all first-year students, Catholic and non-Catholic, to discuss faith, meet other students, and reflect on what brought them to Holy Cross and their journey ahead.
Members of the Class of 2017 who took part in the Escape retreat share their experiences in this video. Upperclassmen, who helped lead the retreat, along with Megan Fox-Kelly, associate chaplain and director of retreats, also offer their thoughts.
