The Spiritual Exercises have been recognized as an inspired guide to the development of a deeper Christian spirituality ever since St. Ignatius completed them in 1533. Great saints and countless ordinary people have been spiritually shaped through this powerful experience. This system of meditation and prayer continues to be the backbone of Ignatian retreats, where seekers come to examine their lives, contemplate their futures, face their decisions, and revitalize their souls.

First time ever being offered VIRTUALLY! A Minimum of 20 people required for this retreat to take place.

This is a great way to introduce someone NEW to the Loyola retreat experience – if they have been hesitant! Sign up together! Invite a spouse, partner, family member, friend, co-worker, neighbor! You can all participate together VIRTUALLY! We may be socially distanced but we are spiritually connected!
Our first ever VIRTUAL RETREAT will be structured the same as a weekend retreat and will begin Friday evening at 7pm. It will be offered using ZOOM, but DO NOT BE AFRAID! You do not have to own ZOOM to participate or be tech savvy. Upon registering, you will be sent a link to the ZOOM retreat along with an alternate call-in number. So if you are NOT TECH SAVVY, you can simply call-in via phone and participate this way. It is very simple. You will also be sent by EMAIL the schedule; all materials needed for the retreat along with the Loyola Retreat Manual.
After this first VIRTUAL WEEKEND RETREAT, we will evaluate the experience and may add another VIRTUAL weekend at the end of May. Thank you for participating.
