"Rejoice and Be Glad"

Join our retreat director, Father Kevin F. Burke, Vice President of Mission at Regis University, for this “FREE” weekend retreat.  Fr. Burke will share with us his reflections on Pope Francis’s last letter, “Rejoice and Be Glad” (Gaudete et Exsultate) and the joyful hope it inspires.  Give yourself the gift of some quiet time in the comfort and beauty of the Jesuit Retreat House and surrounding grounds on Lake Winnebago. Once there, you will soon begin to realize why the staff always says, “Welcome home!”

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.
