Silent Retreat for Men: Ignatian Spiritual Exercises

In the distractions and busyness of life, everyone is looking for the kind of solace and consolation that can only come from an encounter with Jesus in the silence of prayer. Join with us in these few days of retreat from the noise of the world to learn from the master of the spiritual life, St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), who will guide us through this introduction to his Spiritual Exercises.
In the silence, God speaks. Come and listen!
