Connect is a retreat that started in 1999 at St. Mary's
to welcome incoming freshman and transfer students enrolled at
Our goal for Connect is to empower new students at Texas A&M and Blinn College to take hold of their faith as Catholic adults and live that faith out in order to transform the Church and the world for Christ. This includes building relationships and having an all-around good time. We would love to have the chance to let new students know about the exciting things going on at St. Mary's and encourage them to maintain a relationship with God and make the Sacraments a priority throughout college.
