Pierre Favre Program

The Pierre Favre program is a three-year training program to train people to give the 19th Annotation Retreat of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola. The program is named after St. Pierre Favre who was a close friend and one of the small circle of men who founded the Society of Jesus. He was the man whom Ignatius said could best direct people through the Spiritual Exercises.  Candidates must have completed the full Spiritual Exercises and go through an interview process before one can apply to the program.
