    • History

      Awakening had its birth in 1974 at McNeese State University in Lake Charles. The chaplain at the time, Sam Jacobs, along with his colleagues felt the need for a different kind of retreat. In the words of Chaplain Jacobs “…we felt we had to first provide them with a ‘conversion’ experience before a ‘catechesis’ experience.” This new retreat was modeled after the Cursillo and the Search retreats, two retreats Jacobs and his team were familiar with. From the beginning, Awakening was aimed at giving the participants an experience of God’s love and an encounter with Christ.
