Our Mission…
St. Peter’s Ignatian Spirituality Program has a simple mission—
to help people develop  the spirituality of St. Ignatius. Our Program offers group and individual prayer and retreat experiences.

• Seasonal Retreats   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. Retreats generally open or close with a Mass.

• Meeting Christ in Prayer  A team-led retreat experience that offers a wonderful introduction to the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius.

THE EXAMEN   Find a path towards what our hearts most deeply desire, and develop our growing friendship in love with God in this daily prayer.

Daily Offering Prayer
O Jesus, I come before you at the beginning of this day.
I gaze at your face, I look upon your side pierced by the lance. Your wounded heart speaks to me of God’s love poured out for us.
Take, Lord, and receive my heart: the words of faith that I speak, the works of justice I would do, my joys and sufferings.
When I come to the Eucharistic table, gather my offerings to your own for the life of the world. At the end of the day, place me with Mary, your mother, and for her sake take me to your Heart. Amen.
