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 (Tuesday – Thursday) are also sometimes offered and follow the same format as a Weekend Retreat.

During this weekend retreat, we will take a close look at the life of St. Ignatius with a view toward discovering the similarities between his spiritual journey and ours.  We will come to appreciate how the Spiritual Exercises and Ignatian Spirituality spring from his life story.  The heart of the retreat, as always, will be plenty of silent time for contemplative prayer with Scripture, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, Mass and our Saturday evening extended Holy Hour before the Blessed Sacrament.  We will have four conferences during which there will be presentations on the life of Ignatius and Ignatian Spirituality and contemplative prayer with Scripture.
