Guide Parishoners to Encounter God in New Ways

Ignatius House is a place to pull away from something to experience something else. Discover how to encounter God outside of the pew, sacraments, work, home or school. Learn how to listen for God. (1 Kings 19:11-12)

Retreats are built from the Catholic practice of Ignatian prayer — a pragmatic method written in the 16th century for daily reflection, objective discernment, and contemplation. Retreats are appropriate for adults at any stage of faith formation: from those who were raised with no religious tradition to catechumens, candidates, the lapsed, the faithful, or the ordained.

Find resources below to help more in your parish / community deepen spirituality beyond Sunday gatherings or weekday sessions. Contact Michael Monteleone, community liaison, to plan an experience together at your location or at Ignatius House.
