Weekend Retreat: Celebrating the Feast of St. Ignatius
July 29 @ 6:00 pm - July 31 @ 12:00 pm$350
Directed by Sarah Otto, M.Div.
This special retreat will draw from “Ignatian spirituality,” a nearly 500-year-old tradition developed from the life and prayer of Spanish soldier-turned-saint, Ignatius of Loyola. Ignatian spirituality invites us into a life-giving relationship with God and neighbor through prayer and contemplation.
Retreat director Sarah Otto, M. Div., will present suggestions to help you silently, prayerfully discern big or small stirrings in your life. The retreat includes multiple guided presentations, topics to contemplate and pray upon and unscripted time for rest. Come rediscover not just your best self, but your truest self – as God created you to be.
This is a silent retreat. Guests are expected to maintain a sacred silence throughout the retreat, including at meals, unless otherwise noted.
