Retreats at Ignatius House introduce participants to important principles of Ignatian prayer and engage them in meditations based on key aspects of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola. The retreats combine elements of both guided prayer experiences and individual one-on-one spiritual conversations with a spiritual director as well as opportunities for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist.
This is a silent retreat. Guests are expected to maintain a sacred silence throughout the retreat, including at meals, unless otherwise noted.
