The Mountaintop

The Place Where God Dwells

January 27 - 29, 2023

Throughout the Bible God reveals himself on mountaintops. In fact, we speak of “mountaintop experiences” in our lives–those moments where we have had a deep experience of God. This retreat will follow the prayers of St. Ignatius of Loyola’s Spiritual Exercises in hopes that through silence and prayer these will be days of encountering our God who desires to reveal himself to us.
