Choosing a Retreat
Trying to decide which retreat is right for you? Determine how much time your schedule allows, then search our calendar for that length of activity. Retreat formats are described below — beginning with the shortest formats and ending with the longest.
Classes and Series (“Enrichment” programs) generally meet for a few hours in the evening, while “Days of Reflection” will meet for part or all of a traditional business day. Overnight, silent retreats are available as weekend, week-long, and month-long formats.
Customizing a Retreat
We also offer individually directed retreats (IDR) at Ignatius House or virtually wherever you are. Choose the dates when you’d like to attend or meet online with a spiritual director. A minimum duration of three nights (or three virtual meetings) is required.
During an IDR, you’ll meet at least once daily with a spiritual director. These conversations are about the questions you bring regarding your relationship with God and whatever it is that you wish to discern together. There are no group gatherings or presentations, other than optional daily Mass for those on property. Your time at Ignatius House may coincide with other groups who may not always be in silence, however we will do our best to offer you dates that align with your preferences and goals.
Ignatius House is pleased to work with any individual or group to customize an experience that recharges and nourishes heart, mind and soul. As a non-profit, we are unable to offer accommodations like a hotel. Experiences offered at Ignatius House are centered in prayer.
