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

Ignatian Leadership for Mission: Rooted in the Graces of the Exercises
About the ILM Retreat: The Ignatian Leadership for Mission (ILM) Retreat focuses on the graces of gratitude, healing, call, and co-laboring. The retreat format combines presentation, silent prayer and reflection, and group faith sharing. The retreat is open to lay men and women, Jesuits and other religious.
Gratitude: To understand and rejoice gratefully in who we are – and who we are called to become – by God’s gracious and loving desire and design.
Healing: Grateful joy in the realization of God’s unfailingly, steadfast and forgiving love, and revealed in Christ crucified, before whom Ignatius asks, “What have I done? What am I doing? What shall I do?”
Call: The enthusiastic desire and determination to join God and Christ in overcoming the powers of darkness, so that the light of truth and love, justice and peace might shine in our world.
Co-Laboring: To live and labor lovingly as the hands and feet, heads and hearts, of the risen Lord living and laboring in us, his Ignatian companions, Lay and Jesuit, on mission together.
Arrival is on Sunday between 3:00 & 5:00 PM, followed by dinner and the opening session;
departure is on Friday at 2:00 PM.
Cost is $450 ($225 non-refundable deposit).
The Ignatian Leadership for Mission (ILM) Retreats are co-sponsored by the Office of Ignatian Spirituality of the Maryland and USA Northeast Provinces of the Society of Jesus and the Jesuit retreat centers hosting the 2020 retreats.
