Programs & Retreats

ISC PROGRAMS & RETREATS AIM TO MEET YOU WHEREVER YOU ARE IN YOUR SPIRITUAL JOURNEY, AND TO HELP YOU DEEPEN AND EXPLORE YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD. 

 

Programs & retreats include:

  • Learning about the Ignatian tradition and vision that have emerged from the life and Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius and from those who have since followed in his footsteps;
  • Experiencing the gifts and fruits of Ignatian prayer and contemplation; 
  • Reflecting on the integration of Ignatian spirituality with daily personal experience, decision-making, vocation, relationships, and service of others in today’s culture and world. 

We hope participants will encounter a loving God who is found in all things, and who labors through us to nurture healing, compassion, and justice.
