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

Dear Supporter,








At the Jesuit Center, we deliberately keep our prices low. We offer scholarships to retreatants who cannot afford even our modest fees, and we welcome many folks from economically challenged and inner-city populations.  We rely on the generosity of benefactors to help us keep this historic building and 240 acres of green space spruce and welcoming. 


We ask you to please consider making a donation – of whatever amount – to the Jesuit Center for Spiritual Growth. 


The Jesuit Center for Spiritual Growth is a nonprofit organization and your charitable gift is tax deductible.  Donations of all types are accepted including cash, stocks or other marketable securities, insurance proceeds, and bequests.  If you have any questions about a donation or would like to discuss the best way to financially support the Jesuit Center, please contact Br. Christopher Derby, SJ, Executive Director at 610-670-3625 or at cderby@jesuitcenter.org.  Thanks for your consideration.  Know that we keep all of our benefactors in our prayers.


You can submit your donation through mail or online through PayPal.

You do not need a PayPal account to process your credit card donation.

The Jesuit Center for Spiritual Growth is a Jesuit retreat house and spirituality center situated in the gorgeous rural environs outside Reading, PA.  We invite Roman Catholics, Christians of every denomination, and seekers who hunger for, in the expression of St. Ignatius Loyola, magis – “more” – of God.  Come experience our hospitality, walk these holy grounds, and pray in this sacred space.

Because of Your Generosity...
