Journey with us on our online Ignatian Retreat ~ Seeing God's Presence in our Daily Lives Journey as we introduce a discipline and practice that will move you to a spiritual depth. The Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola immerses you in deep noticing for the Divine in all things, revealing the face of God in our daily lives. Prayer practices (spiritual exercises) and weekly Scripture passages will guide and support us as we pay attention to the holy around us.
Materials will be provided and explored to guide your weekly prayer. Retreatants will also join as a community of practice once a month for eight months. Spiritual Directors facilitate each monthly gathering. While this may be a new discipline for you, the Spiritual Exercises have a rich 500-year history.
