Lord, teach me to be generous, teach me to serve You as You deserve, to give, and not to count the cost, to fight, and not to heed the wounds, to toil, and not to seek for rest, to labor, and not to seek reward, expect that knowing that I do Your will.
– St. Ignatius of Loyola

It was 1927 when the first lay Ignatian retreat began at the Jesuit Spiritual Center in Milford. Throughout the years, thousands of lives have been transformed. Because of your generosity people from all walks of life, come here each year to deepen their relationship with God as they are immersed in His love through the beauty of creation, quiet prayer and time to just be.
Be assured your generosity makes a difference in the lives of so many retreatants as they go forth to live a faith-filled life in their families, in their communities and in our world.
Thank you for supporting our mission to provide a tranquil environment for discernment and reflection, rooted in the Gospel as expressed in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola.

Your gift through the Jesuit Patio ensures that the Jesuit Spiritual Center at Milford is here for generations to come. Please contact Sharon McCullough, JSC Development Administrator at 513-965-6983 or email@example.com
Jesuit Spiritual Center’s Endowment Fund is ministry. While we strive to make our retreats affordable for all, there are situations when for some, they are not. Through our endowment, we can not only offer scholarships to those needing assistance but also offer retreats for groups that may not be able to have retreats otherwise, including the homeless, groups for those recovering from addiction and caregivers. All these are possible through our endowment. A gift to the endowment is a gift to ministry. It’s a gift to the future and a gift to those in need.
