An Ignatian, Silent Weekend Retreat for Men
A 5th century bishop named Diadochus wrote that the measure of our love for God depends upon how deeply aware we are of God's love for us. St. Ignatius' "Exercises" are designed to deepen our awareness of God's love. Our retreat will focus on the relationship between our hearts and God's.
