An Ignatian, Silent Weekend Retreat for Women

Retreat Master: Fr. David Shields, SJ
Retreat Title: Pilgrim Conversations on the Road with Jesus

Not all travel is the same: The goal of a trip is to get from where I am to my destination. Tours are a series of per-scheduled stops to visit various significant sites. But a pilgrimage finds its meaning in the trip itself, in the encounters and conversations with other pilgrims. Pilgrimages are for savoring. In this retreat we will pilgrimage with Jesus through the questions he puts to his companion disciples as they journey to Jerusalem.

Retreat Title: Love Remains

“Jesus offered this beautiful practice to his disciples. Make your home in me, he said, as I make mine in you. The kingdom is within you, he reminded them, alive and miraculous this very moment.” —Wayne Muller

This Ignatian retreat reclaims Love that endures in the midst of turmoil and the tension of daily life. The retreat invites you to a time of quiet to rediscover an interior space. This is space where we remember who we are, what we know, and how we are invited to life abundant. This is time that has no list of daily tasks and does not require action or accomplishment. Time and space where Love comes, Love sustains, Love redeems, Love remains.

An Ignatian, Recovery Weekend Retreat for Women

Retreat Master: Sr. Linda Fischer
Retreat Title: Emotional Sobriety

Emotional Sobriety can be described as living a balanced life; to have the ability to deal with life,  its joys and struggles, in a healthy manner. When individuals become addicted to, or are in relationship with those addicted to alcohol, drugs, or other unhealthy behaviors or substances, emotional growth is halted.  When recovery begins they can once again focus on their own emotional growth receiving a deep inner strength that they can rely upon.  Emotional Sobriety is closely linked to serenity, which is an unshakable sense of inner peace that people find in recovery.  During this weekend we will look at the Signs of Emotional Sobriety and their relationship to the 12-Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.

A 4-Day Ignatian, Silent Retreat for Men & Women

Retreat Master: Fr. Mitch Pacwa, SJ
Retreat Title: The Wonders of Salvation

The Catholic view of salvation requires us to integrate all of the very rich and full teachings on salvation.  What is the role of Christ's death and resurrection?  How do we understand the link between God's unmerited grace and our own free will? How do the sacraments fit into our salvation? What is the role of performing good works? Why is it necessary to pray for perseverance in the life of grace rather than believe that once a person is saved, he or she is always saved?  These are the questions Fr. Pacwa welcomes you to pray and reflect on with him during this 4-day retreat.

Retreat Title: Pilgrim Conversations on the Road with Jesus

Not all travel is the same: The goal of a trip is to get from where I am to my destination. Tours are a series of per-scheduled stops to visit various significant sites. But a pilgrimage finds its meaning in the trip itself, in the encounters and conversations with other pilgrims. Pilgrimages are for savoring. In this retreat we will pilgrimage with Jesus through the questions he puts to his companion disciples as they journey to Jerusalem.

Retreat Title: Love Remains

“Jesus offered this beautiful practice to his disciples. Make your home in me, he said, as I make mine in you. The kingdom is within you, he reminded them, alive and miraculous this very moment.” —Wayne Muller

This Ignatian retreat reclaims Love that endures in the midst of turmoil and the tension of daily life. The retreat invites you to a time of quiet to rediscover an interior space. This is space where we remember who we are, what we know, and how we are invited to life abundant. This is time that has no list of daily tasks and does not require action or accomplishment. Time and space where Love comes, Love sustains, Love redeems, Love remains.

Retreat Title: The Wonders of Salvation

The Catholic view of salvation requires us to integrate all of the very rich and full teachings on salvation.  What is the role of Christ's death and resurrection?  How do we understand the link between God's unmerited grace and our own free will? How do the sacraments fit into our salvation? What is the role of performing good works? Why is it necessary to pray for perseverance in the life of grace rather than believe that once a person is saved, he or she is always saved?  These are the questions Fr. Pacwa welcomes you to pray and reflect on with him during this 4-day retreat.

Emotional Sobriety can be described as living a balanced life; to have the ability to deal with life,  its joys and struggles, in a healthy manner. When individuals become addicted to, or are in relationship with those addicted to alcohol, drugs, or other unhealthy behaviors or substances, emotional growth is halted.  When recovery begins they can once again focus on their own emotional growth receiving a deep inner strength that they can rely upon.  Emotional Sobriety is closely linked to serenity, which is an unshakable sense of inner peace that people find in recovery.  During this weekend we will look at the Signs of Emotional Sobriety and their relationship to the 12-Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.
