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.

January 18 – 20, 2019 – MEN’S WEEKEND RETREAT – Surrender??? How?

Retreat begins on Friday evening with dinner at 7:15pm and ends on Sunday after Mass and lunch around 1:00pm.

Led by: Rev. Tom Marciniak, S.J. and Karen Florance

Surrender??? How does that word make you feel? Does it conjure up thoughts of being conquered, defeated or filled with despair? Relax! That’s not how we will define this word throughout this retreat. We will explore the word surrender the way Jesus intended-as the giving of ourselves over to the Living God so that we may truly find ourselves and take care of our souls in the most healthy way possible. Jesus says to us in the Scriptures there is no greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends (John 15:13). Jesus is our model for surrender. He gives everything to us, and so we respond in like manner. He starts it and we respond. Loyola retreats are based on themes/dynamics of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola. Through silence, solitude and Scriptural prayer, each retreat is designed to help you discover God’s life within.
