Kairos Retreat


Kairos | February 5 –7, 2021

"Kairos" – meaning “opportune” time in Greek –is often referred to, in Scripture, as God’s time. Typically held at El Capitan Canyon in Santa Barbara, CA, this student-facilitated retreat invites participants to step away from the Bluff and their day-to-day routine to reflect more deeply on their relationships with God, others, and self.

What happens?

  • A weekend to relax, reflect, and refocus
  • Listen to student testimonies and reflections about relationship, faith, and life
  • Share in the Kairos spirit and surprises, while building community with your LMU peers

Who can attend?

Kairos is open to undergraduate students from all faith backgrounds and walks of life. While this retreat is rooted in the Ignatian and Catholic tradition, any student coming with an open mind, heart, and willingness to connect is sure to take away something fruitful from this experience!


Contact Jake Blicharz, Campus Minister for Student Leadership Formation. If you have attended Kairos or a similar retreat in high school (Search, Emmaus, etc.), please e-mail Jake with this information. Signups and K25 leader applications will be available in the coming weeks!

*Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our hope is that Kairos 25 can still be held in Spring 2021.
