Parents, alumni, neighbors, grandparents, employees and friends of Saint Ignatius are all invited to participate in two retreat and faith formation opportunities this fall on campus through the Spirituality Program for Adults.
The first opportunity, an 8-week pray-at-home retreat, is called An Introduction to Ignatian Spirituality (formerly known as the Encountering Christ Retreat). This experience is based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola and brings participants together once a week for short witness talks, lessons on different forms of prayer, personal reflection and faith sharing.
This retreat will meet weekly on Wednesday mornings from 9-11:30 a.m. in St. Mary of the Assumption Chapel.
The second opportunity is our Men's Ignatian Retreat, which is back by popular demand. Over five weeks, retreatants grow in faith and their knowledge and practice of Ignatian spirituality, led by veteran retreat leaders Bob Linton and Rich Jerdonek '65. Alumni, fathers, grandfathers, coaches and friends are all welcome to sign up.
This men's retreat will take place on Thursday evenings from 7-9 p.m. in St. Mary's Chapel.
We hope many of you will consider these powerful, prayerful experiences. They offer some great insights into the Ignatian spirituality that students learn about in Theology classes, on Kairos retreats, and throughout their four years at Saint Ignatius.
