Decora is a holistic retreat day set aside to inspire college women and high school women to discover what St. John Paul II refers to as their "feminine genius"...a woman must understand her "fulfillment" as a person, her dignity and vocation, according to the richness of the femininity which she received on the day of creation.


At Decora (Latin for feminine beauty) you will enjoy a fun and exciting day to learn about your immense value as a woman, the beauty and mystery of your creation, and how to say ‘YES!’ to what is true and good. You will enjoy great talks, creative breakouts, yummy food, Pinterest craft, guy panel – all to help you live a healthier and happier life! 

"Decora has shown me that I don't have to be afraid of what the world tells me about my womanhood, because I am beautiful, I am loved, and I am enough" Christy, NDSU alumna


FREE for college students. Donations appreciated.

Invite a friend - all faith backgrounds are welcome!!
