Sister Hope Rodenborn, OSB was one of four spiritual directors who led a Busy Student Retreat in February at St. Paul’s Newman Center at the University of Wyoming-Laramie.
Carving out prayer time can be difficult for a college student whose life is filled with classes, work, study and friends. St. Paul’s Newman Center’s Busy Student Retreat helps students recharge their spirituality and renew their faith by spending a small amount of time with a spiritual director each day.
“Students met with their retreat director for guidance and growth in prayer for one hour for four days during the retreat,” Sister Hope said.
Many of the students had participated in retreats before and loved Adoration but had rarely utilized the Scriptures for prayer in order to know Jesus more deeply, Sister Hope said.
“It was a very impressive experience of sharing with these young people who wanted to grow in Christ,” she said.
