About the “Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius
The “Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius” are a very profound engagement and re-dedication of our lives to the work of Christ in us, and in the world.
In the Spiritual Exercises, five sessions are given in which a progressive appreciation of our relationship and commitment to God’s purposes is encouraged. This retreat will begin each day with a time of contemplative prayer. A teaching time related to the prayer exercises for that day will then follow. In the afternoons you will be on your own to practice these prayers. There will also be opportunities for personal spiritual direction each day related to the exercises. And each evening we will come together again for debriefing and a compline liturgy.Date: Monday-Saturday August 18-23 2014 Time: Monday evening anytime after dinner- Saturday at 4:00 Cost: $375 (includes catered meals from Tuesday breakfast-Saturday lunch) Accommodation: rooms may be booked for an additional fee via Reception at 604.224.4308 for up to $84/room with a %10 discount available if booked by June 19.
