2014 – 2015 Ignatian Weekend Retreat

Based on the methodology and content of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, this retreat is conducted in an atmosphere of prayerful 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:

Retreat ICON“Behold the Face of God”

This theme invites our retreatants to explore the Ignatian Principles of being  “Contemplatives in Action” and “Finding God in all Things.”

The invisible God is made visible through his creative work. Everything is made and continues in existence by God’s creative/ salvific work in Christ (John 1: 1-18). By seeing what God does, we come to know who he is. All that we see is a reflection of God,  leads us to God and yet God is not contained in or limited to any created thing. The retreat helps us to deepen our ability to see and understand with the eyes of Faith.

The retreat is open to anyone who desires to grown in their relationship with God through prayerRetreat ScheduleLoyola 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!
