Based 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. Mid-week retreats (Tuesday – Thursday) are also sometimes offered and follow the same format as a Weekend Retreat.

The history of the Church is full of many female/women Catholic saints, who received recognition for great deeds or meritorious conduct. Many lost their lives in defense of the faith, while others were themselves the mothers of important saints. Many were also honored for their contributions to the Church and their community. We will look at their inspiring and courageous stories. Who were these women? What do they tell us about Jesus? What messages do they have for us as women disciples in the 21st century Church? In examining their stories, we will discover a deeper reality of grace.
