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

“Praying at the Threshold” All Souls’ Day Programs
– Sr. Chris Koellhoffer, IHM
Program offered from 10am to 2pm. (Spaces still available!)
On All Souls’ Day, we hold in tenderness and in prayer our loved ones who have crossed the threshold into risen life. Though our faith assures us that death is not the last word, we may find few things more poignant than saying good-bye. Join us today to remember the company of those who have gone before us, to grieve their loss, to celebrate their lives, to reflect on the wholeness that is God’s dream for all of us. Each of the programs will include prayer, presentation, times of reflection and quiet, and a liturgy of remembrance. The day program concludes with lunch.
This program will be offered on Nov 2:
10 AM – 2PM (includes lunch) | Deposit: $25 | Cost: $50
After you register, you'll be instructed to make your deposit and/or pay your final cost.
