Ignatian 8-week Retreat in daily life

Ignatian Heritage Week is coming up on Jan. 27-Feb. 1, a perfect time to think about all things Ignatian. Consider making an Ignatian 8-week retreat in daily life, beginning in February and lasting into April.

Yout participation involves two things:

  1. A weekly meeting (no more than an hour) with a spiritual director who will companion you on your journey with God, listening to how you encounter God in prayer and in the circumstances of your life, and giving you direction for your prayer in the week ahead.
  2. Daily prayer and meditation on scripture following the guidelines suggested by your director.

Those who will direct these exercises are interns or graduates of the Ignatian Spirituality Institute, a training program for spiritual directors which was inaugurated in 2003 at JCU.
