Clairvaux Service Retreat

March 6-12, 2016

Spring Break Service Retreat sponsored by the Center for Spirituality

Just a few spots remaining! RSVP by Friday, February 5, to reserve your spot!

You are invited to spend your spring break with fellow Naz students, faculty, and staff along with children and families of Clairvaux Farm. We will take the week to work with Deep Roots Inc--doing projects around the farm and getting to know the people they serve as we learn more about poverty and homelessness and the ways in which we can make a true difference. If you are looking for an opportunity to serve and to explore the intersection of spirituality and social justice, then we hope you will consider joining us in March!


We will depart on March 6 at 9:00 am and return on Saturday March 12 in the early evening.


Cost is $100. Scholarships are available!

What is a "Service Retreat?"

For the past 21 years, the Center for Spirituality has sponsored this opportunity for students to serve and reflect. This service retreat is an opportunity to serve Clairvaux Farm, to live in community, as well as to engage in the pursuit of and expression of your own spirituality. Each day we begin and end our days with time for reflection on the spiritual dimension of service and what it means for us in the expression of our individual sense of faith.


"Deep Roots works with children and their families, who are disconnected through homelessness or other similar marginalization: connecting hearts. Our program will challenge children to envision a brighter future, to sustain healthy relationships and to navigate a course towards personal and social responsibility through better life experiences, with mentors, providing healthy life-models for all future relationships."
