Weekend_Retreats_Photo1Based on the methodology and content of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, weekend retreats are conducted in an atmosphere of prayerful silence and include Scriptural prayer, daily Mass, generous amounts of time for prayer and personal reflection, Spiritual Direction, Reconciliation and a Healing Mass. Each retreat weekend focuses on a different theme and is designed to help you discover God’s flame within. Silence is maintained between individuals and during meals so that each retreatant has time and space to connect deeply with God. Weekend retreats are for men, women and sometimes co-ed. A typical weekend retreat at Loyola begins on Friday evening with dinner at 7:15pm and ends on Sunday after Mass and lunch around 1:00pm. Weekend_Retreats_Photo2Mid-week retreats are also sometimes offered and follow the same format as a Weekend Retreat.

Sponsored by:  The Ignatian Leadership for Mission (ILM) Retreats are co-sponsored by the Office of Ignatian Spirituality of the Maryland and USA Northeast Provinces of the Society of Jesus and the Jesuit retreat centers hosting the 2018 ILM Retreats. 

The Ignatian Leadership for Mission (ILM) Retreat focuses on the graces of gratitude, healing, call, and co-laboring.  The retreat format combines presentation, silent prayer and reflection, and group faith sharing. The retreat is open to lay men and women, Jesuits and other religious.

The Graces
To understand and rejoice gratefully in who we are – and who we are called to become – by God’s gracious and loving desire and design.

Healing
Grateful joy in the realization of God’s unfailingly, steadfast and forgiving love, and revealed in Christ crucified, before whom Ignatius asks, “What have I done? What am I doing? What shall I do?”

Call

The enthusiastic desire and determination to join God and Christ in overcoming the powers of darkness, so that the light of truth and love, justice and peace might shine in our world.

Co-Laboring
To live and labor lovingly as the hands and feet, heads and hearts, of the risen Lord living and laboring in us, his Ignatian companions, Lay and Jesuit, on mission together.
