Ignatian Conference Retreats

An Ignatian Retreat is rooted in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola directed by an experienced retreat master who provides a series of presentations designed to assist you with your prayer, reflection and spiritual journey. The retreat includes Mass, Reconciliation, Adoration, Stations of the Cross, Rosary, Healing Service, and Spiritual Direction. It is a time of rest and silence to refresh and to deepen your relationship with God. 

Come and Find Rest

We provide spiritual retreats and sacred space for prayer and discernment where people of all walks of life are encouraged to experience a deeper relationship with God.

Spiritual Exercise

Retreats include personal prayer, opportunities for Morning Prayer, Mass, Reconciliation, Adoration, Stations of the Cross, Rosary, Healing Service and Spiritual Direction.



God is found in our experiences. During each retreat, the Examen is offered as a process to reflect on our daily experiences with God.



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.



Retreatants deepen their relationship with God through their own freedom of choice, whether making a major life decision or finding a new perspective on a certain situation.
