Ignatian Retreats

Attending the St. Ignatius exercises for the first time can be a life-changing experience. The Ignatian Retreat can reveal to us how far our soul has slipped from a true love of God and from appreciating how much He loves us. This may come as a shock even to those who believe themselves to be fervent Catholics, going to Confession regularly and praying the rosary daily.

The first part of the retreat opens our eyes to the gap between our own comfortable assessment of our spiritual life and the reality of how we have bent God to suit our lifestyle rather than fitting our lifestyle to what God wants of us.  Be warned, this can be a salutary experience!  

The second part of the retreat shows us how to make a resolution to love God more; taking the necessary steps to save our souls. 

The Ignatian Retreat represents what could be the final opportunity to cleanse our souls (remember: we do not know the hour of our death) and every Catholic really should seize the chance to attend before it is too late.

Please note that the Retreat will not be offered unless five or more attendees have registered at least two weeks before commencement.
