Our Young Adult Retreats are a series of Sunday afternoon prayer sessions based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola beginning in September/October and culminating with a weekend retreat in June. Each retreat includes a talk based on Ignatian themes of the Spiritual Exercises, small group faith-sharing; contemporary themes, music, and media; Liturgy; time for rest, prayer and private reflection; and time for connecting spiritually and socially with others from 18-39 years of age. Retreatants will receive materials on the theme of the day as well as meditation and additional reading.
Jesus tells us that He is the meaning of life and that encountering His Sacred Heart – full of love for us – will fill our lives with abundant joy, happiness and peace. An encounter with God sets our hearts on fire and inspires us to love and serve God with our entire lives.
The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola will help facilitate this encounter. They consist of meditations, prayers, considerations, and contemplative practices to help your faith become more fully alive each day as you become aware of where God is moving in your life and learn to “listen” to God’s promptings.
This retreat series is for all young adults who want to live life to the fullest in peace and joy! Consisting of 5 Sunday afternoons of prayer between September/October and June, the series has been revitalized from previous years and each afternoon will focus on one aspect of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola.
