Ignatian Practices for Finding God

March 8 - 10, 2024

- Women's Retreat

St. Ignatius encouraged the development of awareness of God within all aspects of life. We can cultivate our awareness with simple spiritual practices that awaken us to the incarnation of God all around us. This weekend we will take time to slow down and contemplate God’s presence through practices that lead us to deeper spiritual connection with Him and our world.
