Day of Reflection celebrating Feast Day of St. Ignatius
July 27, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm$65
Directed by Fr. Bill Noe, SJ
Come away to Ignatius House for a day of prayer and reflection on this Feast Day of Saint Ignatius. Refreshment awaits you for your body, mind, and spirit. The director will lead prayer and contemplation during this day-long retreat, and will present you with sacred words to ponder and pray. You will have times of silence and rest, a satisfying meal, and beautiful grounds to wander as you allow God to dwell deeply and speak tenderly to you.
This is a silent retreat. Guests are expected to maintain a sacred silence throughout the retreat, including at meals, unless otherwise noted.
Check-in begins at 8:30 am, when a light breakfast is available. Program begins in the Chapel promptly at 9am. Lunch will be served in the dining room mid-day. The day concludes with Mass at 2:30pm.
