30-Day Retreat on the Spiritual Exercises
July 11, 2022 @ 6:00 pm$2800
The full Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola will be offered as a 30-day retreat at Ignatius House from Monday, July 11 to Friday, August 12, 2022.
The Spiritual Exercises are a collection of meditations, prayers, and contemplative practices intended to help people to deepen their intimacy with God. By contemplating the depth of God’s love, the reality of sin and its effects, and God’s response to it; and by entering into a personal experience of the mystery of Jesus’s life, death, and resurrection, one can grow in love for Jesus and into a closer discipleship to him.
The Exercises are a proven school of prayer and discernment and can help a person faced with a significant life decision to discover and to choose what God hopes for them.
The entire retreat is conducted in silence and solitude and is well-suited to a person who:
· has made one or more individually directed, silent, Ignatian retreats (of five to eight days);
· has a habit of daily contemplative prayer; and
· has recent experience of ongoing spiritual direction, which demonstrates their ability to articulate their experience of prayer and the trust to share it with another.
During the Exercises as a 30-day retreat, one typically prays four or five times a day, meets a spiritual director once a day, and generally remains in silence during all other times. So that they may remain focused as the retreat requires, one limits their other activities while making the Exercises.
The Spiritual Exercises begin on Monday, July 11, 2022, at 6:00 PM and conclude on Friday, August 12 at Noon.
The cost for this retreat is $2,800, which includes private room, private bath, all meals, and use of 20 acres. No payment may be made until you have completed and submitted your application form and supporting materials, and until that application has been approved and an interview has taken place.
