*Retreat schedule is subject to change.

Retreats are directed by an experienced retreat master who provides a series of presentations designed to assist you with your prayer, reflection, and spiritual journey.

Our Ignatian Weekend Retreats are silent retreats. Often in our busy world we struggle to hear God’s voice. Silence deepens our spiritual life, and enables us to listen to the presence of God within ourselves. 

In addition to the presentations and silence, you will have the opportunity to participate in Mass, Reconciliation, Adoration, Rosary, Stations of the Cross, Healing Service, and Spiritual Direction.
