All Alumni Are Welcome!

Registration and Socializing

Registration for the Alumni Retreat will be held from 4 p.m. – 9 p.m. on Friday, January 24. Leave after work and head to Saint Meinrad for a night of socializing and to be ready for the retreat conferences in the morning! Connect with old friends and meet new ones at the St. John Vianney Lounge.

Saturday: Retreat Conferences, Relaxation, and Fine Dining!

This year’s presenter will be Fr. Mark O’Keefe, OSB, monk of Saint Meinrad and former President-Rector of the Seminary and School of Theology. He will present on aspects of the Benedictine way of life, providing time for enlightening discussion and reflection.

In the evening, there will be a reception and a special dinner for retreat participants. The St. John Vianney Lounge will be open Friday and Saturday nights of the retreat for socializing and enjoying some refreshments.

Sunday: Mass and Head Home!

Retreat participants are invited to stay for Mass on Sunday with the monastic community and enjoy breakfast together. Participants are invited to stay as long as they like, enjoying the grounds and exploring Saint Meinrad on Sunday before heading home.

Alumni enjoy a fine dining experience together during the Alumni Retreat on February 9, 2019.
