For over 95 years, The Jesuit Retreat Center of Los Altos has offered the opportunity for people to experience the quiet, a time of prayer, and the wisdom and counsel of talented retreat directors. We consider the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius Loyola as a blueprint for spiritual progress. With the guidance of the Exercises, you will experience a closeness with God that enhances all aspects of life, from personal relationships to the routine of your career.
The Jesuit Retreat Center of Los Altos, a community of prayer, offers the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola to all. Through our sharing of the Exercises, rooted in the Word of God and in the Catholic tradition, the Spirit frees minds and hearts to mature in friendship with Christ, to find God in every aspect of experience, and to live Gospel values.
