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 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 are asked to commit to attend weekly mini-retreats September 13 through mid-May, meeting Thursdays 7:15 – 9:15pm. Directed daily prayer and monthly spiritual direction round out the retreat experience. The cost is $800 for the year including a $50 deposit. Payment plans are available.
Space is limited. There is an application and process of discernment required since this is a high-commitment endeavor. Applications will be accepted through August 31. If you are interested, please email us and the retreat leader will respond to you personally.
