An Ignatian, Silent Weekend Retreat for Men

Retreat Title: The Spiritual Exercises: Who am I? Where am I going? How do I get there?

A retreat is a contemporary way of observing the Sabbath. We cease from work. We make space for God. We enjoy the gift of time to contemplate who we are from God's perspective, where He is inviting us to go with our lives, and how to follow His lead.

Groups Attending: Individuals, Our Lady of the Grove KC/St Mary HNS (Buffalo Grove), Al Raffin (St Patrick - Chesterton), St. Mary (Lake Forest), St. Peter & Paul (Cary), St. Francis De Sales (Lake Zurich),
