IgNite Evening Retreats

The beauty of retreats is that they provide us an entry into rest, reflection, and renewal.

Sometimes when we are most busy or overwhelmed is when we need to step away the most, yet find it hard to do. This year, Ignite invites and encourages adults in their 20’s and 30’s to join us for 3-hour evening retreats in the midst of daily life. This format is accessible and easy to schedule, even during the work or school week. Join us and bring a friend!

Finding god in the workplace: Integrating Spiritual & Professional Lives

Thursday, October 4, 2018

6:00 - 9:00 PM

St. Joseph Parish Center, Seattle

About this program

Showing up to professional spaces as a person of faith can be a challenging opportunity for growth and development for any young adult. However, living out Ignatian values which favors a commitment to the common good, care for the whole person, and service to others can be a meaningful path towards spiritual alignment. Join facilitator Maria Ochoa for a conversation on how to live and lead out of a place of faith and Ignatian values in the workplace, and engage with other young professionals on how they are making that possible in their own lives.



Cost for this program is $10. 

Limited working scholarships are available. Please email Maria L. Ochoa, Ignite Program Coordinator to inquire.



If you would like to help subsidize the cost of participation for another person, we welcome your donation. Thank you for helping us to make it possible for all persons to participate in this program!

finding god in busy moments

As fall comes upon us, so does the increase of activities, commitments, and to-do's. What is it about this time of year that makes us anxious and overwhelmed? Join Ignite facilitator Maria L. Ochoa for an evening to pause before the busy creeps in, and learn an Ignatian tool or two for how to manage it once life gets ahead of you.
