Did You Know?

In addition to the retreats and programs offered by our Spiritual Growth staff, the Jesuit Center for Spiritual Growth welcomes Catholic and other ecumenical groups who are looking for a beautiful setting to conduct their own group meetings.


Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty,

my memory, my understanding

and my entire will,

All I have and call my own.

You have given all to me.

To you, Lord, I return it.

Everything is yours; do with it what you will.

Give me only your love and your grace,

That is enough for me.

—St. Ignatius of Loyola

“Rend Your Hearts”: Ash Wednesday Day of Prayer

with Susan Bowers Baker

Wednesday, February 26, 2020

9:30 AM – 3:00 PM


Lent is about change: of heart, of perspective, of focus; it reminds us of the death that precedes resurrection. We are invited in this Day of Prayer to reorient and reassess our lives in order to more fully respond to Jesus’ life and call, a call which is profoundly personal and uncompromisingly communal.


Arrival: 9:00 – 9:30 AM. The program will begin at 9:30 AM  and will include input from Susan, opportunities for quiet prayer and reflection, Mass with reception of ashes, and lunch.  The program will conclude at 3:00 PM.


Cost: $50 ($25 non-refundable deposit)
