Retreat and Event Calendar

In unsettled times we can look to spirituality as a foundation and source for making meaning, for perspective, for comfort and for discerning approaches to sustainable living when familiar routines and assumptions are challenged. 

Covid-19, racial injustice, environmental degradation, sexual discrimination come to us as signs of a broken world, moral failure and sin but, they also provide a context for us to look to God as the source of human flourishing and justice in our time. Our retreats, days and evenings of prayer tap into the wisdom of our Ignatian, Catholic Christian tradition for grounding and direction. All gatherings this year are designed to be held virtually. If health conditions allow it we will gather in person.

5-Week Retreat: Conversations With Christ In Turbulent Times

The fall 5-week retreat looks to God who offers himself in dialogue with humanity not as the source of judgment but as empowering relationship.  In the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius the life of Christ is examined not for intellectual pursuit but as a way of encountering the living God who has taken on the fullness of the human condition. How does God see us and see me during this time of unrest and uncertainty? What is my response? In this retreat we look to the beginning movements of the Exercises to enter into dialogue with God. We will use Ignatian approaches to prayer, practice skills and develop dispositions to engage with God who can be discovered in the real circumstances of our lives.

Day of Prayer: Calming The Storm? Be Not Afraid

The changes that have taken place in our world since March 2020 raise troubling questions of personal and social well being, environmental and racial justice. How does a person find calm and make sense of this seeming chaos? But God calls order, harmony, peace and justice out of chaos. Using Pope Francis’ recent Good Friday meditation Urbi et Orbi on the calming of the storm passage and Jesus’ reaction to the storm, we will explore our own storms through prayer and movement. Like other retreats this year, this will be a Zoom based retreat so each of us will have to brownbag our lunch and share it virtually.

5-Week Retreat. Reconciliation: A Time For Hope And Healing

The same God who has revealed himself in the Incarnation as one of us continues to empower us with hope against all that would challenge love: violence, injustice, despair in the face of disease and isolation. Reconciliation provides hope for healing relationships with ourselves, with one another and with creation itself. Drawing from the Exercises of Saint Ignatius, we look at the meaning of self-emptying love and its requirements in the face of social and environmental challenges. Hope prompts us to seek our own transformation as we turn to the One who continues to offer new life.
