2016 – 2017 Ignatian Weekend Retreats

 The Ignatian Weekend Retreat is conducted in silence and includes generous amounts of time for prayer, personal reflection and the cultivation of a deep relationship with God.  Each year the retreat focuses on a different theme. This year’s retreat is entitled:

“Entering into the Father’s Joy”

 Prodigal Son 1

In the Parable of the Prodigal Son, Jesus invites every disciple of every age into God’s loving embrace.  Through that embrace we enter into the Father’s joy, which transforms us.

This retreat invites us into the mystery of God’s action in our lives, relying on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius and the spiritual wisdom of other Christian teachers of prayer.  The retreat is open to anyone who desires to grow in their relationship with God through prayer.
