Did You Know?
In addition to the retreats and programs offered by our Spiritual Growth staff, the Jesuit Center for Spiritual Growth welcomes Catholic and other ecumenical groups who are looking for a beautiful setting to conduct their own group meetings.
Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty,
my memory, my understanding
and my entire will,
All I have and call my own.
You have given all to me.
To you, Lord, I return it.
Everything is yours; do with it what you will.
Give me only your love and your grace,
That is enough for me.
—St. Ignatius of Loyola

30 DAY SILENT DIRECTED RETREAT "SPIRITUAL EXERCISES OF SAINT IGNATIUS" JUNE 29 - AUGUST 1, 2017
The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius may be done in the form of a thirty-day silent retreat. This individually directed retreat is for those who wish to deepen their relationship with God through the full-time, month-long experience of the Spiritual Exercises. It is important that an individual who undertakes a retreat of this magnitude is ready for and committed to the undertaking, as it is a major investment of time and energy for both retreatant and director. Individuals interested in making the Spiritual Exercises in this format are expected to have experience with at least one Ignatian directed retreat and to be committed to daily prayer and meditation and regular spiritual direction.
