Growing: Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius
The Spiritual Exercises help you fall more deeply in love with God and live in closer communion with Him.
Originally developed by Ignatius of Loyola in the 1500’s, this encounter with God is often called a “retreat in everyday life” because the exercises help participants hear God by paying attention to the ways He is already active and present in their lives. Our experience invites you to lovingly companion Christ in what he is already doing in you and in the world around you.
An experienced spiritual director leads an individual or a small group through a 30-week retreat focused on scripture and the life of Jesus, inviting growth in prayer through silence, reflection on scripture, group interaction and individual spiritual direction. This is a soul workout, requiring 30 minutes to an hour a day to focus attention on God and His work in your life.
Participants in Ignatian Groups are asked to commit to attend weekly mini-retreats September through mid-May. Directed daily prayer and monthly spiritual direction round out the retreat experience. The cost to participate in a group is $1200 for the year including a $100 deposit. Payment plans and some partial scholarships are available.
Individuals can also be led through the Ignatian Exercises one-on-one with a spiritual director. Regular meeting times will be established directly with the leader. The cost to participate will be communicated directly by the retreat leader and is typically a little more than the cost of participating with a group.
Space is limited. There is an application and process of discernment required since this is a high-commitment endeavor. If you are interested, please email us and the retreat leader will respond to you personally.
