Directed Retreats

directed1A directed retreat is an individually guided silent prayer experience in which the retreatant follows the dynamics of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius while listening for God’s personal word spoken through the Sacred Scriptures. Each retreatant is assigned a Spiritual Director with whom the retreatant meets daily for reflection and spiritual discernment. These retreats are for those who are experienced with sharing their interior life and with prior experience of spiritual direction.

Week-long Summer Preached Retreats

July 12 – 18, 2019 – WEEK-LONG SUMMER PREACHED RETREAT – The Sermon On The Mount

Led by:  Rev. Steve Pugliese, S.J.

The theme for this retreat is "The Sermon On The Mount: The Lord's Blueprint for Living a Faith Based Life and the Key to Spiritual Freedom."

Psalm 4 asks, "What can bring us happiness, many say?" True happiness, or joy as the scriptures describe it, can only come from living God's will. In Matthew, chapters 5 through 7, Jesus explains to his disciples what that means for daily living in this collection by the evangelist of the Lord's sayings. Seemingly simple, they ask for a profound transformation of our inner selves and a willingness to be transformed into disciples who walk humbly with our God. Join us as we explore the depths of Christ's Sermon on the Mount and its many challenges to the Lord's faithful who seek that one thing necessary.

This retreat begins with dinner at 6pm and ends after breakfast and Mass on the last day, approximately 10am. Group talks orienting your prayer are given each day. The retreat includes daily Mass, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, the Sacrament of the Sick, and plenty of time for private prayer.
