One of the great gifts of Ignatian spirituality is its wisdom on discernment – not just for the big vocational decisions in life, but in the everyday decisions. God can be found in the little details of our lives. This retreat introduces this “spirituality of everyday life,” offering practical tools like the Examen prayer and Ignatius’ rules for discernment to help you bring your faith to life and your life to faith!
Each retreat includes at least three guided presentations, topics to contemplate and pray upon, and plenty of unscripted time for rest. Come rediscover not just your best self but your truest self – as God created you to be. Reconciliation will be available.
This is a silent retreat. Guests are expected to maintain a sacred silence throughout the retreat, including at meals, unless otherwise noted.
Sarah Otto, M.Div., serves on the Pastoral Team at Ignatius House. She studied theology as both an undergrad and graduate student, receiving her Master of Divinity from Boston College. Her passion has focused on the intersection of faith and justice, which led her to study in El Salvador. Sarah spent a year in the Jesuit Volunteer Corps, serving men and women experiencing homelessness in Portland, Ore. Sarah has worked as a hospital and prison chaplain and most recently worked in college campus ministry for five years, both at Providence College and as director of a Newman Catholic Center in Chico, Calif. As a young mom, Sarah is particularly passionate about ministering to women and families but continues to enjoy helping people discern how to live a faith that does justice, as well as discovering the unique and creative ways God works in everyone.

During that time, he taught primary school students in Syracuse, NY and Kingston, Jamaica, worked at a palliative care cancer hospital in the Bronx, and was a chaplain at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC.
