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.
Check back soon for more info on upcoming programs for the 2018-2019 year!
