The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius


A Retreat in Everyday Life


Every day men and women are called to deepen their relationship with God.  How often have you asked yourself the following questions?


- What does it mean to deepen your relationship with God?

- In what ways are you being challenged or invited to risk what you know for something beyond your wildest dreams?

- When was the last time you shared your desires to know God with someone?

- Does your curiosity move you to seeking a path that will open up a way to God?

- "My way of praying doesn't seem to move me anymore."  Does that ring a bell!


If it does an you are already on the spiritual journey, which means that you already have spiritual disciplines built into your everyday experience, then perhaps  the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatious - The Retreat in Everyday Life is for you.


What are the Spiritual Exercises?


The Spiritual Exercises are a structured way of praying with the Sacred Scripture.  It is also called the Retreat in Everyday Life because it is a way of Scripture.  It is also called the Retreat in Everyday Life because it is a way of integrating your daily life with your prayer life.  Observing the action of God in all the circumstances of your life is an amazing experience.


The pray-er of retreatant makes a commitment to pray for an hour each day on a specific scripture passage, keeps a journal of the encounter with God (what happens in your prayer) and meets with an experienced spiritual director once a week for thirty weeks.  This sounds like a long time but whine you are engaged in your prayer, life takes on a new perspective.


We offer this very unique experience to those whose hearts are open to experience God in a deeper, more personal way.  If you would like to explore this possibility for yourself, call 631-647-8683
