At the Jesuit Center, we deliberately keep our programs affordable. We offer scholarships to retreatants who cannot afford even our modest fees, and we welcome economically-challenged folks from the inner city.  We hope you join us for this very important fundraising event!

“I Carry Your Heart” Holy Week /

Directed Weekend Retreat

Facilitated by the staff of the Jesuit Center for Spiritual Growth


i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)  This sentiment from a poem by e. e. cummings aptly describes Jesus’ interior state as he approaches his Passion and Death.  He carries our sin, pain and sorrows deeply within his being as he embraces his final hours, and “by his wounds we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5).


As we begin Holy Week, we are invited into the heart of Christ, to be drawn deeper into the saving mystery of his Passion.  The retreat will include individual spiritual direction from the Center staff, as well as opportunities for private prayer, liturgy, the sacrament of Reconciliation, and the Stations of the Cross.  All are welcome, but registration is limited to 16 people.


Arrival is on Friday between 4:00 and 5:45 PM, followed by dinner and the opening session; departure on Sunday is at 2:00 PM.  


Cost is $240 ($120 non-refundable deposit).
