Ignatian Retreat Program

Ignatian Weekend Retreat

The Ignatian Weekend Retreat is an adaptation of the Spiritual Exercises along the lines suggested by St. Ignatius in his 18th Annotation. “The Spiritual Exercises must be adapted to the condition of the one who is to engage in them, that is, to his age, education and talent.” The weekend is first and foremost a school of prayer, the dominant form of prayer being an introduction to Ignatian contemplation. Four input sessions revolve around the theme of desiring, seeking and finding God in the reality of everyday life. There is an opportunity for one on one consultation with staff members, a reconciliation service, a communal Way of the Cross which emphasizes the social dimensions of our faith, and a Eucharistic Celebration each day. A strong commitment runs like an electric current through of the program — a commitment to a faith that does justice. Retreatants are called to interior silence for the week-end — a precious gift which many discover as gift only after they have experienced it for the first time.
