Find Hope this Advent

Living in Hope this Advent

Advent is a time of anticipation, longing, and hope. It marks the beginning of a new spiritual year, when we contemplate arrival of the Christ child, Emmanuel—God with us.

Make your Advent a time of prayerful contemplation for the hope you hold, the grace you seek, and the gift of God on Earth, walking among us all.

Ignatius House invites you to make room for prayer – whenever and wherever you are this season. Let the Jesuit tradition help you recognize God among us.

Search online and on-property prayer experiences. Some are free, short, or overnight. There’s something for everyone. There’s something for you. God awaits.

Pray with the Incarnation. Receive Advent Scripture reflections each Wednesday via email.

Give the gift of a retreat this Christmas. Choose a gift certificate amount and add a book bundle, too!

Donate toward a retreat for someone in hardship. Every gift helps us welcome all who seek closeness to God. Thank you!
