Mountain Community Leaders coordinates and leads activities between Bonaventure students and the friars at Mt. Irenaeus. The Mountain is a Franciscan retreat located 32 miles from campus, tucked into the foothills of southwestern New York. Known for its peaceful beauty, the Mountain is a getaway for the Bonaventure community and a home for the friars who live there.
Mountain Community Leaders organizes overnights at the Mountain's cabins and accommodations, weekend retreats, opportunities for community services and the chance to relax, hike the Mountain's trails, work in the garden and share a home-cooked meal with the friars.
The group holds weekly meetings on campus for Scripture readings, reflections and meditation. Mountain Community Leaders is open to all students interested in joining. They meet multiple times throughout each semester and welcome all members of the campus community from all faiths and denominations.
