An Ignatian, Silent Weekend Retreat for Men
The fullness of Christian life is not in keeping rules but in being gradually made into a beloved child of the Father, another Christ, another Mary! This retreat begins with our being made in God's own "image and likeness" and then traces this journey through the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola.
Groups Attending: Individuals, St. Margaret Mary (Chicago), St. Vincent Ferrar (River Forest), St Mary of Vernon (Indian Creek), KC-Holy Ghost (St Theresa's, Palatine), Father Ladniak Memorial, St John the Apostle (Villa Park), Queen of All Saints
