“Going to this retreat showed me again what I knew deep down: I can’t and shouldn’t live ‘alone’.”
— Retreater, Alabama Awakening VII

Are you fully alive?


As college students, we are saturated by a culture that offers us pleasure, power, money, and honor, but does it offer us the fullness of life? Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI said, "The world offers you comfort, but you were not made for comfort. You were made for greatness."

The Church calls those who have achieved greatness the saints, heroes, and heroines who have been lights in the darkness. Jesus Christ in His One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church has been giving Life to the saints for nearly 2,000 years. At Alabama Awakening, you will be called to greatness and glory. You will witness the Church fully alive. You will come into contact with the Source and the Summit of that Life.

“Awakening is an experience like no other. Open your heart at Awakening and I promise you that the Lord will heal.”
— Staffer, Alabama Awakening VII

“Unlike other retreats, Alabama Awakening does not leave you with a “retreat high,” but rather it leaves you changed. It changed the way that I see my faith.”
