Office of Ignatian Spirituality

Upcoming Opportunities for Spiritual Growth

Inspired by the Universal Apostolic Preference to “show the way to God through the Spiritual Exercises and discernment,” retreat teams and colleagues of the Jesuits USA Central and Southern Province offer opportunities to pray, learn, grow, and journey with Christ.

NEW IN 2024: PILGRIMAGES with the Office of Ignatian Spirituality

Encountering Christ “along the road” is a hallmark of Christianity in general, and of Ignatian Spirituality in particular. Before he was a Saint or “Ignatius,” Inigo Lopez de Onaz y Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus, was a “pilgrim.” We hope you will consider joining Fr. Hung Pham, SJ as he leads fellow pilgrims to encounter with Christ in this unique and all-encompassing experience of physical, intellectual, communal, and spiritual exercises.

1. IGNATIAN CAMINO for YOUNG ADULTS (June 10-22, 2024)

Desire to deepen your faith by following in the footsteps of “the Pilgrim” whose spiritual journey has been uniting people to Christ for over 500 years? Participants in this young-adult pilgrimage will be fully immersed in Ignatian Spirituality by physically walking through Ignatian sites in Northern Spain (Loyola, Montserrat, Manresa) and from La Storta to Rome, Italy. (This offering is now FULL).

2.  Following the FOOTSTEPS of OUR MOTHER (October 14 – 26, 2024)

Spaces are still available for this 13-day prayerful journey to major European Marian shrines: Fatima, Lourdes, and Montserrat (with additional stops in Lisbon, Paris, and Barcelona). This multi-cultural experience promises to draw pilgrims close to She who most expediently “places us with her Son.” (6 spaces available)
