Crusader Awakening


Crusader Awakening 13 Is Here!

"This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him.” -Matthew 17:5 

What Is Crusader Awakening?

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?


How Much Is Awakening?

The cost is $50 per person, which includes an awesome t-shirt, lodging, supplies, transportation, and all your meals for the weekend. We are thankful for all of our generous donors who are able to help make this retreat cost more reasonable. If you would like to come but find yourself unable to pay the registration fee, contact Father Joseph Paul Albin via email at for partial or full scholarships!
