In a letter dated 29 May 2020, the Provincial of the former Maryland Province of the Society of Jesus announced his decision to close the Jesuit Center for Spiritual Growth, effective August 2021.  You may read the Provincial’s letter, accompanying FAQs, and Br. Derby’s letter of response here.


While we are sorrowful at the decision, we are focused on the remaining time of ministry here in Wernersville.  The Jesuit Center will continue to offer retreats and other programs for spiritual renewal, and to host groups, through August 2021.  You can see our 2020-2021 program calendar here.

2020 JCSG Program Calendar

Starting on June 30, we will be welcoming a very limited number of in-person retreatants for our silent directed retreats ONLY.  Retreatants will be screened for health reasons and must follow our safety protocols.  We are adding additional directed retreats to accommodate retreatants beyond the limited number of places available.  We are also making available the option to participate virtually in directed retreats via Zoom  (noted by asterisk* after the retreat name).

During this time of pandemic, the Jesuit Center for Spiritual Growth has allotted periods of time each month to welcome individuals who wish to make a private retreat.  Time periods set aside for private retreat include:


• November 16 to 23, 2020

• December 1 to 7, 2020

• More dates TBA
