“As Certain as

the Dawn”

Spring Reflections 

Fr. Robert M. Hussey, SJ, the Provincial of the Maryland Province of the Society of Jesus, has decided to close the Jesuit Center for Spiritual Growth, effective August 2021.  Fr. Hussey announced his decision on 29 May 2020 in a letter to the Province.  You may read Fr. Hussey’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.  As much as possible in this pandemic, the Jesuit Center will be offering retreats, days of prayer, and other programs for spiritual renewal, and hosting 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).
