About the Event

Six Week Discernment Retreat

Thursdays, April 20 - May 25 | 9:30-11:00 am EDT (virtual option available)

Presented by Rev. Gerry McKeon, SJ

Fee $75, or whatever you can afford

This six week retreat in daily life will encourage us to grow in our capacity to discern the presence of God in our lives. We will seek to pay attention to our experiences, and our interior moods. We will draw from the wisdom of Scripture, our daily lives, and the discernment of spirits which Ignatius of Loyola continued to explore and articulate during his own spiritual journey. 

Participants will be offered suggestions for prayer each day. They will also gather for six Thursdays in the Easter Season. During these group gatherings,  there will be an opportunity to share on the graces of the prayer during the previous week. Input will also be offered on the theme for the upcoming week of prayer. On the final weekly gathering,  there will be an opportunity for each retreatant to share how he/she has developed a ‘discerning heart’ during these weeks of prayer.

THEMES FOR EACH WEEK OF PRIVATE PRAYER

  • Praying the Examen: Foundation for Discernment
  • Finding God in the Ordinary: Paying Attention to Daily Experience
  • Prayers of Discernment: Paying Attention to Interior Movements
  • Greater Discernment of Spirits: Deceptions of the Enemy
  • Praying with the Resurrection: Walking with Christ the Consoler
  • Gathering Retreat Graces: Becoming Contemplatives in Action
