Retreat & Program Registration

Retreats at Ignatius House Retreat Center are based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. All Ignatius House retreats are silent, unless otherwise noted. They are directed by a certified spiritual director who provides a series of presentations designed to assist you with your meditation, reflection, and spiritual journey. The retreat offers opportunities for participation in liturgy, group prayer, and spiritual direction. Time in the schedule and physical settings of the retreat center offer one solitude, nature trails, reflection/prayer areas and numerous opportunities to be alone with yourself and God. You will have a private room and bathroom, and all meals will be prepared by our professional chef service.

Classes and book study groups are led by highly skilled and qualified directors affiliated with Ignatius House, typically last 6-12 weeks (depending on the topic or the book being read), and will assist you in your spiritual walk, build new friendships, and open your heart to the love of God. Unless otherwise stated, the participants should purchase the book prior to the class.

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction training programs teach the practice of mindfulness and its application to stress reduction, self-reflection and the mobilization of inner resources to support health, healing, cognitive performance and personal growth.

These longer retreats (by application only) are individually directed and offer an opportunity for extended silence and solitude. Retreatants meet each day with their director to determine the number, nature and length of periods of formal prayer depending upon the ability and needs of the individual. Retreatants are provided suggested scripture passages tailored to their own prayer needs. Ideally, retreatants will have some experience in meditative prayer, the desire to enter into prolonged silence, and sufficient self-awareness to recognize their own inward movements. All retreatants will have the opportunity for daily liturgy and reconciliation.
