Jesuit Spirituality



“Ad Majorem Dei Glorium”,

” To the Greater Glory of God”

The spiritual foundation of  The Jesuit Retreat Center at Los Altos has been unchanged since we hosted our first retreat in 1925. We consider the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius Loyola as the roadmap for a pilgrim’s spiritual journey with God. With the guidance of the Exercises, one experiences a closeness to God that enhances all aspects of life, from personal relationships, to career and family life. Through the Spiritual Exercises, the Holy Spirit frees hearts for union with God and others.
