Retreats

The Jesuit Retreat House offers two types of silent retreats: Weekend Preached and Summer Directed.

Weekend Preached Retreats are offered to men and women of all faiths and are based upon Ignatian Spirituality. The standard weekend retreats are also adapted to focus on couples, 12-Step AA / Al-Anon recovery, women & Advent, men & Holy Week and Spanish speaking retreatants. Weekend Preached Retreats are offered from September thru May.

5- & 8-day silent retreats for men and women where each retreatant meets daily with an assigned personal spiritual director. These silent retreats offer each retreatant an opportunity to spend alone-time to commune with nature, our Creator God and to meet daily with an assigned personal spiritual director. A massage therapist is also available. Directed Summer Retreats are offered from June thru August.
