Year of Faith
The Jesuit Spiritual Center -- Where we've been and what we do now. Read it here!
"I came feeling I had lost the experience of having God speak to me, and I found it this weekend."
"I came empty and was filled."
"I had never been to this type of retreat before. I found it uplifting, holy, and a wonderfully peaceful way to get in touch with God."
"Best retreat ever! I leave wanting to become the man I was meant to be."
"I have been coming for a long time and each time the program is wonderful and different. I love coming."
"Cost of gas from Lexington, $30. Cost of the retreat, $195. Spending the weekend with my 80-year-old dad . . . priceless."
"Our director was academic and real at the same time, and clear but not simplistic. He challenged and expanded my perspective and definition of love and the cross."
"Each year God calls me to this retreat."
"The rhythm of each day allows the space and time and environment for personal solitude and prayer."
Spiritual Exercises Retreat
JSC is offering the full Thirty-Day Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola September 30 through November 1. Retreatants will stay in the Center's Elias Thomas Retreat House, an intimate setting designed for smaller retreats. Fr. Tom Ryan SJ and others trained in the Spiritual Exercises will serve as spiritual directors. The Center's 37 acres are at their most beautiful this time of year, and we hope you'll join us. For more information, contact Fr. Tom at (513) 248-3500, ext. 25, or by email.
