Personal Retreats

Day of Retreat

Several times throughout the year we host non-overnight day retreats for prayer, renewal and reflection. These are listed on the calendar and include Ignatius Day, an Art and Journaling workshop, Ash Wednesday, and the Busy Person’s Day of Retreat.  These are led by our pastoral team, spiritual directors, faith leaders, or special guest hosts. 

Personal Retreats

It is possible to arrange for a personal retreat.  We have three forms are available:

  1. An Individually Directed Retreat provides you an opportunity to meet with your spiritual director for 30-45 minutes daily.  These are silent retreats.  These retreats have a two night minimum stay and you determine how long they last.
  2. An 8-Day Retreat available throughout the year.
  3. And the 30-day Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius also offered throughout the year.

Please submit your inquiry as early as possible to make sure a director and rooms are available.

Your fee includes a single room with a private bath, linens and towels, and three meals per day beginning with dinner on your arrival day. Full payment of your reservation is required four weeks prior to your stay with us.

The 19th Annotation Retreat

St. Ignatius of Loyola realized that not everyone could set aside and schedule 30 days or more to participate in the Spiritual Exercises. His solution is known as the “19th Annotation Retreat” named so because it is explained among several other annotations at the beginning of Ignatius’ book on the Spiritual Exercises. This retreat occurs during daily life as the retreatant continues to live at home. Those who make this retreat participate in  daily readings, prayer and meditation disciplines, and meet weekly with a spiritual guide over several months.
