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”
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.
Retreat Fee: $235
First Time Retreatants and/or Young Adult (30 and under) Fee: $185
Loyola partners with many Parish communities throughout the greater Metropolitan Area and beyond. A list of parishes that participate currently and their respective weekends can be found on our calendar. Please feel free to contact our office if your parish is on the list and you would like to be put in contact with your local Parish Retreat Captain. Again, please note that the Ignatian weekend experience is open to anyone – you do not have to be part of a Parish Group to come. All are welcome!

The Healing Power of Forgiveness
A Retreat for Women
March 24 – 26, 2017
Facilitated by: Joy Aker
Forgiveness is something we all struggle with. We often forget that forgiveness is a journey and not a destination. It is a process for our own healing and well-being. This retreat will help us find the grace and mercy of God’s love in our lives as we explore the journey to forgiveness.
April 13 – -16, 2017
