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

Mining God’s Dream for Us: Autumn Day of Prayer
– Sr. Chris Koellhoffer, IHM
10 AM - 3 PM
Autumn, the season of burrowing deep, holds a unique invitation: to sort out the stuff of life. What is nearing a harvest of completion in us? What do we need to gather into our barns and store in reserve? What fields are still unexplored and inviting a fresh imagining? What untended pastures call for our attention and speak to the deepest longings of our heart? Join us for a day of stillness, reflection and conversation when we will prayerfully distill our hard-earned wisdom, listen attentively to our stories, and discern new directions for wholeness and growth both now and in the seasons to come.
Please arrive between 9:30 AM and 9:45 AM. The program will begin at 10 AM and will include input from Sr. Chris, opportunities for quiet prayer, Mass, and lunch. The program will end at 3 PM
Deposit: $25 / Cost: $50
