"Retreat in Everyday Life"

Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius

(aka, the 19th Annotation - don’t worry if you don’t know what that means!)


NOTE: This will be offered by zoom! 

This “Retreat in Everyday Life” offers the complete experience of the Spiritual Exercises over a nine-month period. St. Ignatius recognized that most people – even back in the 1500s – needed a way to deepen their prayer amid the busyness of their lives! Using contemporary resources, the wisdom Ignatius received from God is still pertinent today.

Who might benefit:

  • Those who desire to grow in their relationship with God
  • Those who desire to live life more fully
  • Those who seek to understand more clearly God’s movements in their lives
  • Those who want to discern the next step in their lives, or who are already in transition

Prerequisites include:

  • Possessing a genuine desire to grow in relationship with God
  • Committing to time for prayer each day throughout the duration of the retreat (approximately 9 months), plus daily journaling about the prayer experience (more information about journaling will be provided)
  • Committing to meeting either weekly (preferred) or every 2 weeks with your director
  • Familiarity with the zoom video platform
  • Being familiar with the use of Scripture in prayer (there will also be instruction on this)
  • Openness and receptivity to ongoing one-on-one spiritual direction through the duration of the retreat
  • Willingness to share the details of your prayer experiences with a spiritual director
  • An interview with a director may be required

All those whose participation is confirmed, will be encouraged to participate in an introductory session. This will also be a nice opportunity to meet others who will be on retreat this year. There will also be a final gathering at the conclusion of the retreat.

Directors:     Patricia Frederick and Stephanie Romiti
