Koinonia Alumni Fundraiser
Give the gift of Agape Love

For more than 30 years, Koinonia retreats at St. John's Catholic Newman Center have transformed the lives of college students, leading them close to Christ.  As Koinonia alumni, we know the impact that Koinonia has had in our own lives and vocations.

In gratitude for the many gifts, graces, and fruit borne of our time in Koinonia, this year Koinonia alumni again have the goal of gifting a Koinonia retreat weekend to a current student.

Thank you for your generosity in extending this new tradition of Koinonia alumni giving back to current students through the gift of the transformative experience and Agape Love found on Koinonia.

A gift of $50 sends one student on retreat. A gift of any size makes a difference in the faith journey of the students of St. John's Catholic Newman Center.
