Alternative Spring Break
Alternative Spring Break (ASB) is an opportunity for students to use their Spring
Break to serve those in need rather than themselves.
All Freshmen and Transfer Students are invited to enjoy a weekend away with your new
friends and prepare yourself spiritually for the year!
Awakening is a widespread, national retreat program for college students that focuses
on one of the major attributes of our faith that sometimes, in the busyness of our
college lives, we tend to forget: that we as a Church are a community, a family made
up of very different and gifted people who need one another, and most of all, need
Christ. At Crusader Awakening, students will experience a weekend founded on the reception
of the Sacraments of the Eucharist and Reconciliation. Throughout the weekend, peer
leaders will address some of the very real issues we deal with in our lives through
a series of talks that contain personal testimony, practical advice, and theological
reflection that Crusader Awakening has become known for! Retreatants will also participate
in group discussions, shared meals, Adoration, praise & worship, skits, and so much
more! Are you ready to reinvigorate your relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church?
In the craziness of exams, career decisions, and the logistics of family attending
the various ceremonies, there is little time to stop and truly reflect upon the gift
of a graduands time at UD. This retreat is designed to be a brief oasis as seniors
prepare for the final sprint to the finish line, a time to reflect upon the years
at UD, the relationships formed, and the road that lies ahead.
