Weekend Retreat: Roads Less Travelled – Discernment in the Spiritual Exercises
September 9 @ 6:00 pm - September 11 @ 12:00 pm$350
Directed by Fr. Jim Fleming, SJ
Fr. Jim Fleming, SJ, has joined Ignatius House as one of our retreat directors, and the director of mission outreach. If you haven’t heard Fr. Jim share his great knowledge of Ignatian Spirituality, come to this two-night retreat! You’ll gain a deep understanding and appreciation for encountering God – everywhere.
You’ll be presented with suggestions to help you silently, prayerfully discern big or small stirrings in your life. The retreat includes multiple guided presentations, topics to contemplate and pray upon, and plenty of unscripted time for rest. Come rediscover not just your best self but your truest self – as God created you to be.
This is a silent retreat. Guests are expected to maintain a sacred silence throughout the retreat, including at meals, unless otherwise noted.
