Ignatian Retreats

Attending the Exercises of St. Ignatius for the first time can be a life-changing experience. An Ignatian Retreat can reveal how far a soul has slipped from a true love of God and from an appreciation of God's love for souls. 

The first part of the retreat brings a soul to the understanding of the difference between the perception of spiritual health and the reality of how we actually stand before God.  The second part of the retreat teaches the means by which a soul may cultivate a true love of God.
