We live in a time of fear: pandemic, violence, and fear that the future only brings more fears like climate collapse. God again is saying, “I put before you death and life. Choose life.” This day we join Mary as she hears, “Fear not, you have found favor with God” and becomes God’s model of how to create life in a fearful world.
A day or evening of reflection, grounded in the Jesuit tradition, is a shorter version of the Ignatian Weekend Retreat. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, a day or evening program is sure to give you the peace and serenity needed to be still and to rest in God's loving embrace.
Your day or evening of reflection includes thematic talks from our skilled Retreat Leaders, time for private prayer, celebration of Mass and a meal.
