An Individually Directed Retreat in Daily Life:

God’s Abiding Love Retreat (October 2-8, 2016 and January 29 – February 4, 2017)
A one week long individually directed retreat made at home for individuals who want to be introduced to praying in the tradition of St. Ignatius Loyola, that is, engaging the intellect and the imagination.

Lenten Retreat (February 26 – April 8, 2017)
Registration has ended for the upcoming retreat.
A six week long individually directed retreat made at home for individuals who want to engage in a practice of daily prayer during Lent. The retreat is appropriate for those who have made the full Spiritual Exercises or another Ignatian retreat.

Emmanuel Retreat (Advent 2017)
A one week long individually directed retreat made at home for individuals who are seeking more familiarity with the practice of praying with Scripture and using one’s imagination in prayer. This retreat is offered in December.

An Ignatian Retreat Facilitated in a Group:

In the Spiritual Exercises, St. Ignatius Loyola suggests that the Exercises could be made in two ways: the Full Spiritual Exercises (made over a thirty day period or nine months) and the First Spiritual Exercises (made over a shorter period of time). The following are the first two of four retreats in the First Spiritual Exercises.

Inner Peace in Divine Love (October 16 – November 20, 2016)

The upcoming retreat is currently full. Please email Martina O’Shea to be placed on a waiting list.
This six week long retreat is made in a group and focuses on the God who can lead us from darkness into the light; the God who offers love, reconciliation, freedom and healing. The retreat is appropriate for those who have made the Inner Peace in Divine Love retreat.
