A place of peace, rest, illumination, and closeness to God

Loyola Jesuit Center is a very special place. It has been used for retreats since 1927. Since then, thousands of people have walked through its doors, seeking peace, restoration and God’s presence. In today’s busy and often uncertain world, such a place is needed more than ever. Our retreats offer people of all faiths, cultures, and ages and from all walks of life, a place of peaceful silence where they hear the Good News of Jesus Christ, find serenity, and deepen their relationship with God.

Support The Mission

There are a number of ways — large and small — that you can support the mission of Loyola Jesuit Center and its ministry. While outright gifts are most immediately helpful to Loyola, donors may make a contribution in a variety of ways. Many of these offer substantial tax, estate planning, and other financial benefits. As a result, donors may enhance financial security for themselves and their families, while also making a substantial commitment to strengthening the future of Loyola.
