The Institute of the Incarnate Word will be hosting the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola--
The Spiritual Exercises is a silent retreat that has been universally recognized as an inspired guide to the development of a deeper Christian spirituality ever since St. Ignatius completed them in 1533.
Great Saints, as well as countless religious and lay people, have been shaped through their dedicated use. This system of meditation and prayer continues to be the backbone of Ignatian retreats where earnest seekers come to examine their lives, contemplate the future, face decisions, and revitalize their souls. Above all, this retreat helps those who undertake it to renew their Christian dedication and enthusiasm.
August 29th- September 1st at St. Kateri Tekakwitha Novitiate, 1714 Crain Hwy., Upper Marlboro, MD.
Cost is $75.00 payable to "Servants of the Lord". To request a registration form E-mail Mother >
