Advent 2022

Peace on Earth? It's Here.

Advent Silent Days and Silent Nights at Ignatius House

Peace doesn’t have to wait until Christmas Eve! Let these days before Christmas include time for stillness and prayerful reflection. Ignatius House will help you leverage a 500-year-old Jesuit tradition to make room for God.

Advent is a time of anticipation and quiet preparation. It marks the beginning of a new spiritual year, when we contemplate arrival of the Christ child, Emmanuel — God with us. It is a time to express hope for the graces to come through the gift of God on Earth, walking among us all.

Explore in-person or online prayer experiences at Ignatius House. Some are free, short, or overnight. There’s something for everyone. There’s something for you. God awaits.

Spend a day at Ignatius House with time for guided prayer, self-reflection, and Mass.

Break away from daily routine and distractions for a weekend in prayer.

Pause each week with a 15-minute, guided Advent Examen prayer.

Pray with Scripture reflections each Wednesday via email. See a sample.

Give the gift of a retreat this Christmas. Choose a gift certificate amount or add a book bundle, too!

Donate toward a retreat for someone in hardship. Last year, 85 requests for hardship assistance were made.
