Ignatian spirituality is a spirituality for everyday life. It insists that God is present in our world and active in our lives. It is a pathway to deeper prayer, good decisions guided by keen discernment, and an active life of service to others.
St. Peter’s Ignatian Spirituality Program offers group and individual prayer and retreat experiences:
• EXPLORING the PRAYER of the DAILY EXAMEN
a fresh and customized prayer app inspired by St. Ignatius’s Examen, a practice that helps you review your day in the presence of God. With unique Examens tailored to your mood, needs, and situation, the app invites you to pray from where you are, wherever you are. Offered as a 4-week retreat.
• SEASONAL RETREATS – SPRING 2018
You are invited to deepen your experience of Advent and Lent by attending a 3-hour Saturday retreat that combines a team-member-led reflection on the theme, a guided group meditation of imaginative contemplative prayer, private meditation and paired participant sharing. Free parking, no program fee.

Many of our team members have been trained in certified programs of Spiritual Direction at Jesuit-based Spirituality Centers including Fairfield University, Wernersville and The Charlotte Spirituality Center.

It connects you with thousands of people who find purpose in praying every day for the challenges of humanity and for the mission of the Church as the Pope proposes in his monthly prayer intentions. Click To Pray encourages people of good will throughout the world to join the Pope in prayer. Its “Prayer Wall” also invites us to pray for one another, right now. https://clicktopray.org/
