AWAKEN . . . . AND NOTICE THE PRESENCE OF GOD

 

A time for you…..

to pause, reflect and be refreshed!

A time to slow down from the hectic pace of life! 

A time to grow and deepen your spiritual life!

 

A Retreat for Busy People, designed for both beginners as well as those already immersed in their spiritual journey, gives you the time to pause, experience some quiet, and pay attention to God’s call and presence in your life…..... And can be adapted to your busy schedule. The retreat consists of meeting weekly with your spiritual director (dates and times to be determined) and offers an invitation to pray each day. Your conversations occur in a safe place and are kept confidential. This retreat is a time for you......to discuss the joys and struggles of life, reflect upon where you are in your spiritual journey, ponder any decisions you have to make, or explore questions of meaning and purpose.

 

We open and close the retreat with a communal prayer service....(with lunch included)

What others are saying ……………..

 

“I appreciated the opportunity to connect with my director on a weekly basis.  As an individual who focuses much of their time on student needs and concerns, it was purposeful to have the time devoted to my personal development…………..I look forward to participating in future semesters.”

“I must admit when I got the brochure 2 years ago, I laughed at the irony of it and threw it in the recycling.  I thought – I’m too busy for a retreat for busy people!!  When it came in the mail this past year, something about it struck me and I let it reside on my desk for a week before taking the plunge and signing up. In the end, the retreat truly was a gift of time!  What I spent in time with my spiritual advisor I gained tenfold in my day to day life.”

“The time with my spiritual director was something I looked forward to each week.  It not only got me out of my usual routine,

but it was one peaceful moment in the week where I could remember the good things that happened and talk about any difficult times.

The structure is informal and adapts to fit each person. I’m sorry it took me so long to try it.”

Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius

The exercises are a pathway to recognizing God's activity in our deepest desires and growing in unity with God. Emerging from the experience of St. Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus, the Exercises provide a structured opportunity to mature in spiritual freedom and make choices that are responsive to God's call in one's life.
