Ignatian Weekend Retreats

A Silent Ignatian Retreat is an opportunity for personal reflection and prayer.  It is a time of rest and silence to refresh and experience the divine encounter with God.  It allows you time away to reflect on where God is at work in your life and in the world.  These retreats are rooted in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola directed by a certified spiritual director who provides a series of presentations designed to assist you with your meditation, reflection and spiritual journey.

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.

Silence

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.

DiscernmentIconWhite

Discernment

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.
