Fr. Robert M. Hussey, SJ, the Provincial of the Maryland Province of the Society of Jesus, has decided to close the Jesuit Center for Spiritual Growth, effective August 2021. Fr. Hussey announced his decision on 29 May 2020 in a letter to the Province. You may read Fr. Hussey’s letter, accompanying FAQs, and Br. Derby’s letter of response here.
While we are sorrowful at the decision, we are focused on the remaining time of ministry here in Wernersville. As much as possible in this pandemic, the Jesuit Center will be offering retreats, days of prayer, and other programs for spiritual renewal, and hosting groups, through August 2021. You can see our 2020-2021 program calendar here.

"Priests Forever: A Retreat Day for Priests in the Trenches"

The summer and fall of 2018 have been a difficult time for the Church and, not least, for the shepherds who have had to accompany their wounded flocks. This day of retreat will focus on Scripture, prayer, and fraternal sharing as a way for priests to support one another and to stay focused on their mission of serving God and God's
holy people. The day will include Mass, time for personal prayer, and lunch.
Arrival: 9:30-9:45 AM.
Cost: $50 ($90 if arriving Thursday & staying overnight) - ($25 Non-refundable Deposit)
