The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola

A Retreat in the Real World

The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola encourage a closer relationship with God by praying through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. This Retreat in the Real World is a journey, from September to May, of praying the exercises in daily life while journeying with a group on a monthly basis.

From September to May, participants spend an hour daily in personal prayer, keep a journal of their prayer experiences, share their prayer journey with a spiritual director every two weeks, and gather monthly for continued learning.  The group meeting via Zoom is usually the second Tuesday of the month from 6:30 to 9:00 pm (exceptions may occur).

Required text: The Ignatian Adventure: Experiencing the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius in Daily Life by Kevin O’Brien, SJ (Loyola Press, 2011). Participants are responsible for acquiring their own textbooks.
