This highly-structured, Scripture-based program takes retreatants through the themes of St. Ignatius Loyola’s timeless Spiritual Exercises. Your commitment to the program will include:

Integrating faith into your every day life
Accepting the challenge to become a more faithful disciple of Jesus
Are you interested in developing a consistent prayer practice? Has your relationship with Christ led you to want to know Him better? This may be a good time to consider the Spiritual Exercises, a program of prayer designed by
St. Ignatius Loyola over 500 years ago. This classic of Christian spirituality leads a person into friendship with Jesus through prayerful contemplation of scripture and developing a discerning heart.
The Center offers the Spiritual Exercises spread over thirty weeks. Retreatants follow an assigned daily prayer time, and then gather together weekly for a group presentation and individual time with a personal Prayer Guide.
This year’s programs begins September 14 and continues weekly through May 10 with breaks for holidays. We plan on offering it in person on Tuesdays 1:00-3:00 p.m. Depending on interest, there may be a virtual program via Zoom Tuesday evenings, 6:30-8:30. The cost for either program is $600.
Some grant funds may be available for a partial scholarship, if the fee is prohibitive. Applicants will be asked to pay a $25 application fee and to purchase the book.
