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
In addition to the retreats, workshops, and programs offered by the Jesuit Center, we welcome non-profit groups who are looking for a beautiful setting to conduct their own group programs, retreats, or meetings.
Our facility is located nine miles west of Reading, PA. We have 250 acres of beautiful rolling hills, planned roads, walkways, terraces, grottos, and cloister gardens.
Past groups that the Jesuit Center has hosted include: RCIA groups, parish council retreats, training sessions for parish staff and volunteers, adult education classes, bereavement groups, parish senior citizen groups, high school Kairos retreats, and more.
Some groups come for the day and others spend the night. Day groups pay for their meals (breakfast $7, lunch $14, dinner $18) in addition to paying a rental fee for the meeting room. Costs of the meeting rooms range from $20-$150 depending on the room size and length of time needed. Overnight guests pay $90 per night (this includes up to three meals per day) and a group rental fee for the meeting room.
The Jesuit Center has 85 private bedrooms, a large dining room, a small private dining room, conference rooms, small meeting rooms, and several small parlors for group meetings. View sample photos of our meeting rooms and bedrooms.
