The Office of Mission & Identity is launching a series of “Magis” retreats that will focus on discernment.  Faculty, staff, and administrators are invited to attend a two-night, three-day Magis: Canisius Collaborators Retreat over spring break.

Our new Magis program was inspired by  Boston College’s Halftime Retreat—an experience that focuses on discernment and three central questions: What brings me joy? What am I good at? What does the world need from me?

The retreat will take place from Tuesday, March 17 (arrival around lunch) – Thursday, March 19 (departure after dinner) at the Mercy Spirituality CenterThis retreat will provide participants with ample time for reflection and quiet at the Mercy Spirituality Center, located next to Highland Park in Rochester.

We will continue building community across divisions at Canisius by each briefly sharing part of our own story (professional, personal or spiritual). Each day will include shared meals, a nightly Examen, optional spiritual direction and lots of unstructured time for you to care for your whole person.

Limited spaces are available. If interested, please apply here. Spots will be given on a first come, first served basis. Applications are due by Wednesday, February 19.

There is no cost to attend. Housing, meals, and programming will be provided.

Questions can be directed to Sarah Signorino, director of Mission & Identity, at Ext. 2424 or
