An Ignatian, Silent Overnight Retreat for Men & Women
At a time where our attention is what is for sale, people feel understandably adrift from God, others, and themselves. In this retreat for "busier-than-I'd-like" young adults, Fr. Joe Simmons will offer points and Ignatian tools for how to reground our spiritual life in God. Ideal for 25-45 year olds whose spiritual flame is flickering.
Groups Attending: Young Adults (45 and younger), Individuals
