Give yourself the gift of a week of stillness and prayer on a silent individually directed retreat.
Paired with a spiritual director experienced in facilitating the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola, embark on a prayer journey to help you see God in your daily life and notice God stirring the depths of your heart.
Pope Francis tells us, “The journey of life is precisely this: journeying in order to meet Jesus.”
Each day you will meet with a spiritual director and have the opportunity to participate in the celebration of the Eucharist, worship in Eucharistic adoration, enjoy the serenity of our grounds, and spend time in silent prayer and reflection.
