30 Day Spiritual Exercises

Date: June 26 - 4:00pm to July 30 - 10:00am

Details:

30-day Spiritual Exercises retreat  - St. Ignatius’ prepared the Spiritual Exercises as a 30-day intensive retreat.  The Exercises can be helpful for someone making a decision – whether it is a vocational choice, a decision regarding one’s current way of life, or pertaining to a period of transition.  It is also an excellent experience for anyone in a time of renewal or sabbatical, or for anyone who desires to deepen their relationship with God.

○ The retreat experience begins with three days of preparation and concludes with two days of appropriation. That makes the retreat a total of 35 days. During the retreat itself, the retreatant prays four or five times a day, sees a spiritual director once a day, and participates in daily Eucharist. An atmosphere of prayerful silence pervades the property and the hearts of the retreatants.

○ Normally, retreatants will have made at least one silent, directed retreat (8-Days or 19th annotation) before embarking on the 30-Day; it is also expected that they will have already engaged in ongoing spiritual direction.

○ In addition to filling out an application form, those wishing to apply will be asked to supply a statement from their spiritual director detailing both the duration of spiritual direction and their readiness for the retreat; two letters of recommendation from those active in the faith who know the retreatant well, and a headshot to be used in the retreat welcome package.

○ Please note that no action can be taken on any application until these materials are received, along with a $500 deposit required to reserve a space. Once an application is approved, the remaining $2,200 balance will be upon arrival.

○ Fee  $2700

○ $500 deposit due with completed application
