30-Day Retreat is a form of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. The retreat is suited to a person who wants to grow in union with God as a disciple of Jesus Christ, and who has the time to set aside other pursuits for about a month. The retreat prayer, in the form of meditation and contemplations, is rooted in traditional Christian practice and in the scriptures. Four hours each day is the usual pattern, together with reflection periods to take note of what is happening.
The purpose of the Ignatian Exercises is practical, toward self-understanding and decision making that arise from one’s relationship with God. And it can also be a school of prayer toward the deepening of life choices already in place. You will have the daily guidance of a listening companion to help appreciate what God might be offering of grace and invitation. Daily Mass is also available as a part of the retreat.
