"The Logos retreat had an enormous impact on my relationship with myself, God, and others. I have never experienced God's love the way I did during my time on this retreat. I got to know myself, I grew closer to God, and I bonded with others. I had a chance to make new friends on a deeper level and they are friendships that will last a long time."
LIGHT SHOWN IN THE DARKNESS
FROM THE STUDENTS...
"This retreat helped me to realize a lot about myself. It pointed out that I was not in as good of a place that I thought that I was. I definitely have struggles. It also helped me to realize that EVERYONE has a story, whether you think so or not. You never know the things that are going on in someone else's life, even your best friends. Logos felt like a family to me, and it was a life changing experience. I also grew in my faith more than I ever thought that I would. There was so much love experienced on this retreat, and I know that God was telling me he loved me through everything that I experienced. I could not have asked for a better time, or better people to spend that time with. :) Logos is something that I will never forget for as long as I live.
"I felt like, now that I have felt God, I cannot live without Him. Daily prayer has always been hard for me but now I WANT TO GO TO CHAPEL. WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME??!!?! No, but for real, So so powerful. I feel so loved :'). I pray that I will never live without God. I hope everybody feels the same. I'm still having trouble going back to life lol."
"My relationship with God has completely changed because of Logos, and I can not wait to share that with others. The way I felt His love for me is something I will never forget. Going on Logos was the best decision I have ever made."
John 1: 1 -5
What is LOGOS?
LOGOS is Greek for WORD.
It is a unique retreat that encourages the participants to deepen their relationship with God (the Word-Made-Flesh) while simultaneously connecting with their peers and forming life-long friendships. The element of surprise during the entire retreat plays an important role in keeping the participants engaged and excited. This retreat is different from any retreat STM has done in the past because it shows the connection between God, family, and friends. The large groups highlight life themes and the small groups amplify the connections that the participants have with each other, but often times don't notice. The LOGOS retreat is extremely beneficial because the participants are graduating in the next year, giving the participant even more reason to grow stronger in his/her faith and family life!
