Silent Ignatian Directed Retreats 2013
June 15 - 23, 2013
Spring Hill College will offer individually directed silent retreats, following the dynamics of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, June 15 - 23, on our 380-acre campus in Mobile, Alabama. Participants may register for either five or eight full days of retreat.
The eight-day retreat begins with a short orientation on Friday, June 14, at 7:30 p.m., and ends after dinner on Saturday, June 22 (or the following morning). Eight-day retreatants will begin their first full retreat day on June 15.
Five-day retreats may be taken for any five consecutive days during this time period; retreatants should arrive for the orientation session on the previous evening, at 7 p.m.
Directors will be staff and graduates of Spring Hill's certificate program in Spiritual Direction. Retreatants will be housed in single occupancy rooms; 3 meals are provided each full day of the retreat (none on orientation day).
In the words of one of our recent directors, the silent Ignatian retreat offers “the opportunity to be refreshed with a renewed balance, centered in God, and to set priorities that nurture one’s true self, found in God. As a retreat director, it has been a great joy for me to witness God’s presence and loving touch in the lives of retreatants.”
