Ignatian Weekend 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.

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.
