Connect is a retreat held at the beginning of every Fall semester for incoming Freshmen and Transfer students. Connect is held at St. Mary's and is a fun, 2 day retreat. There will be speakers, small groups, games, delicious food, new friends, praise and worship, and above all FAITH! Retreaters will stay in dorms/apts/houses over night and will return the next day. This year, Retreat 1 is August 22-23, and Retreat 2 is August 26-27. For more information and to sign up, click here.
Freshmen Connection is a group that hosts social events for freshmen. Throughout the school year, we will have dinners and events that will give you the chance to meet other freshmen, as well as upperclassmen, who call St. Mary's home. These events are all free and provide a good starting place if you've never been to St Mary's or feel you don't know anyone in the community. To check out our upcoming events, visit our webpage here.
John 15 is a new community at St. Mary’s for incoming freshmen starting Fall 2014. It is designed to be the spiritual equivalent of A&M’s “FLOs” and will serve as a smaller community at St. Mary’s to help freshmen with the transition to college life. Freshmen will meet once a week to focus on a verse of John 15 and will meet in small groups led by sophomores to discuss the teaching and receive support from fellow freshmen.
