June 25, 2017 - July 2, 2017

Retreat begins with dinner at 6pm and ends after breakfast and Mass on the last day, approximately 10am.

An eight day retreat at Loyola involves daily prayer times reflecting on God’s presence in our lives by meditating on scripture passages suggested by your spiritual director. The method usually involves placing yourself in the setting of the passage, to see with your senses all that is about, the people, what is said, the sights, even the feel and smell of the bible scene. This helps you to inhabit the scene and become one with what the bible passage is trying to say to you, what God is communicating to you through it. You may also be invited to speak with or have a “colloque” with the persons in the scene. During this time you will be encouraged to note any feelings you have during your meditation as well as thoughts and desires. You then bring your prayer experience to your daily session with your spiritual director. There, with the director’s help, you will reflect on your experience, always with the understanding that you are attempting to discern God’s path for you. The retreat will be in an atmosphere of silence. You will not be speaking with anyone other than your director during your daily time together. You will also be highly encouraged to leave off all communication with the outside world while on retreat, focusing only on prayer and your reflection on it. It is a privileged time of focusing only on you and God. It is a wonderful, if somewhat disciplined way of finding your true path and how God is leading you to a more intimate relationship with God’s loving self.
