Campus Ministry is inviting faculty and staff members to participate in the Kairos Retreat this semester. The Kairos Retreat is taking place November 4-6 , beginning late-afternoon Friday until mid-afternoon Sunday.

Participants need to commit to being present for the duration of the two-night, overnight experience at Cradle Beach Retreat Center, present a retreat talk from assigned topics, and fully participate in a small group with students during the weekend. We also ask that you attend at least two pre-retreat meetings at a time and date to be determined.

No prior retreat experience is necessary. We are looking for faculty and staff who are willing to be vulnerable and share deeply, personally and appropriately with students, as well as receive and listen to the sharing of others and provide a supportive presence during the course of the weekend.

If you are interested or have questions, please contact Spencer Liechty at with the following information:

  • Name
  • Role at the college
  • Kairos experience: If you have attended or led before. If so what year?

Please express your interest by September 28.

  • A limited number of spots are available. If more submissions are received then spots available, there may be a wait list that develops for future retreats.
  • Preference will be given to those who have never participated in a Kairos experience before, in order to provide the opportunity to the highest number of faculty/staff in our Canisius community.
  • Even if you are not able to personally participate, we would appreciate you encouraging students to sign up to attend the retreat. Students can sign up using the link here.

Thank you for your support of this meaningful Canisius College tradition!
