What's Next? Discerning Your Decisions in the Ignatian Tradition

September 21-23, 2018
An Ignatian, Silent Weekend Retreat for Men

Retreat Title: What's Next? Discerning Your Decisions in the Ignatian Tradition

All of us have important decisions to make - decisions that radically alter our lives. Yet without a sound process in place for making these key decisions, we will never feel fully confident that our decision was what God truly desired for us. The Spiritual Exercises help us move toward a deeper interior freedom to better navigate the twists and turns of life. Fr. Michael helps us better understand St. Ignatius’ methodology for decision-making and how it can be applied to the big and small decisions we face.

Groups Attending: Individuals; St. John Neumann (St. Charles), St. Frances of Rome - KC Council, John Kasting Retreat Group, Cathedral of St. Raymond (Joliet)
