Universitas 2016, hosted by the Institute of the Incarnate Word and the Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matara, will take place May 22nd – 26th, at St. Patrick’s Retreat Center in East Durham, NY.


Young adults (18-35), both in college and in the working world, are invited to share four days of Catholic formation, prayer, fraternity, and outdoor recreation.

Universitas gives busy young people a breather between the close of the semester and the beginning of summer, a moment to be reminded once again that each of us are called to be God’s instrument of salvation in the world, in and through Jesus Christ. God has prepared a “definite service” for each one of us, so that our lives may serve Him and His plan of salvation.

Take a break to pray, give thanks for the past academic year, and gear up for summer and the new year ahead!

Blessed John Henry Newman, pray for us! Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, pray for us! St John Paul II, pray for us!
