The heart of our Ignatian ministry is the presentation of seasonal retreats, open to all. Participants deepen their 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.
For those who wish to dig deeper, we offer small-group, guided retreats (two weeks for Advent and five weeks for Lent). Retreatants receive a booklet of scripture readings, commit to a half hour of daily prayer, and meet once a week as a group to share where God has shown up. We encourage the practice of journaling and use of the daily Examen.
