Weekend Retreat: Mary Magdalene – The Apostle to the Apostles

July 19 @ 6:00 pm - July 21 @ 12:00 pm


Directed by Maria Cressler, MTS, and Sarah Otto, M.Div.


Back by popular demand! As a friend to Jesus, an important figure in the resurrection story and a woman of great faith, Mary Magdalene has so much to teach us.

Maria Cressler, MTS, and Sara Otto, M. Div., will share how this incredible woman can help us all grow in freedom, develop intimacy with Christ and cultivate the courage to be witnesses in the world.

This retreat includes at least three 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.


Maria G. Cressler, MTS, is the Executive Director of Ignatius House Jesuit Retreat Center. She received a B.A. in Sociology from Georgia State University and a Master of Theological Studies and Certificate in Spiritual Direction from Spring Hill College.

Sarah Otto, M.Div., serves on the pastoral team at Ignatius House. She studied theology as both an undergrad and graduate student, receiving her Master of Divinity from Boston College.
