Advent 2023

Peace on Earth? It's Here.

Advent Silent Days and Silent Nights at Ignatius House

Invite peace into your days before Christmas! Take a moment for stillness and prayerful reflection with Ignatius House. Let us guide you in leveraging a 500-year-old Ignatian tradition of create space to encounter God.

Advent is a season of anticipation and quiet preparation, marking the start of a new spiritual year. We contemplate the arrival of the Christ child, Emmanuel—God with us. It’s a time to express hope for the graces to come through the gift of God on Earth, walking among us.

Explore our Advent prayer experiences at Ignatius House. There’s something for everyone, and there’s something specially designed for you. God eagerly awaits your presence.

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

Break away from daily routine, busyness, and distractions for a weekend of silence, rest, and prayer.

Pause each week with a 15-minute, guided Ignatian 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 the grace of a restful retreat to someone struggling emotionally or economically right now. We received over 85 requests for financial assistance last year.
