Salve Retreat-your presence is a gift - September 16-28, 2022

Each year in the fall semester, University Mission & Ministry offers a SALVE retreat for UIW students. The weekend is designed to give you an opportunity for inner reflection and welcome you to the UMM community. Located at a beautiful site in the Texas Hill Country, SALVE provides the ideal get-away to help you pursue a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and, together with others, spread His joy to the world. SALVE is a Catholic-based retreat but is open to all Christian denominations.

This was a great opportunity to really get to know one another more: where we each stand in our faith journey and what we are hoping to get out of being at UIW. It was really great to see many open up about their experiences with prior communities of faith....that we all felt very comfortable and open with one another!

We learned that prayer can be different for each of us, and especially while experiencing college life, it can even be difficult to pray.
