About The Retreat

This annual retreat for priests and deacons has evolved over the years to meet the needs for silent reflection, prayer, conversation and community.  It includes morning prayer with a reflective conference, evening prayer, and Liturgy and a centering prayer session each day.  There is conversation at noon and evening meals, the rest of the times is silent.

Each retreatant will have the opportunity to meet privately with a spiritual director to reflect on the daily movements of the Spirit in his life.

The retreat will be directed by members of the Loyola staff, and others, who are professional spiritual directors and experienced in retreat ministry. The role of retreat director is to support the retreatant in noticing the reality of God’s presence and activity in their life.

Included each day:

  • Individual session with a retreat director
  • Liturgy of the Eucharist
  • Group centering prayer
  • Morning prayer & conference
  • Evening prayer

Massage is available upon request for an additional fee, payable to the massage therapist. The deadline to reserve a massage slot is Thursday, November 10th.
