5-Day Silent, Guided Directed Retreat:
From Pain to Peace: Immersed in God’s Healing Love
6:30pm Sunday, July 5 to 1:30pm Friday, July 10
Directors: Chris Cartwright, SJ; Lina Ponder, PsyD;
Agustin Lizama; Emily Chapa.
Pain in its varied manifestations seems to be a burdensome part of life. We are told all different ways to “deal” with it, from medicating it away to just being with it to finding ways to “transcend and transform” it to “offering up” our suffering for others. But what good purpose could possibly come out of physical, emotional, or psychological pain? Where is God in the midst of our suffering? And what does love have to do with it? Come to our annual 5-Day Guided Directed Retreat to encounter God’s love and see what might be possible. This is a silent retreat patterned after the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. Time is provided for spiritual reflection, solitude and prayer focused on scripture and personal life experience. The schedule includes a Scripture-based conference each morning, individual direction (a daily meeting with a retreat director),
celebration of daily Eucharist, and optional evening prayer activities, including a Reconciliation service.

8-Day Silent, Guided Directed Retreat
Today’s Good News: The Joy of the Gospel
6:30 pm Sunday, August 2 to 1:30 pm Sunday, August 9
Directors: Fr. David Robinson, SJ; Br. Charlie Jackson, SJ; Sr. Barbra Ostheimer, SND; Sr. Jeanner Fallon, CSJ; Sr. Teresa Groth, DMJ; Jack Gonsalvez, LIS Associate; Liliana Hsueh-Gutierrez, LIS Associate; TBD
We are inundated with news stories of violence, death and destruction, personal tragedies, seemingly insurmountable situations occurring around the globe in the midst of our own life struggles and challenges. Increasing pressures and the pace of life add to the anxieties and fears that feel so pervasive. It seems as though we have forgotten that there is another story, another way of being and believing. We have forgotten that there is “Good News”. We have forgotten the joy of the Gospel. Come to “recover the original freshness of the Gospel” (Pope Francis, Evangelii Guadium”) on our annual 8-Day Guided Directed Retreat, a silent retreat based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. It provides time for spiritual reflection, solitude and prayer, inviting retreatants to be attentive to the inner movements of the Holy Spirit. Prayer focuses on scripture and personal life experience. The schedule includes a Scripture-based conference each morning, individual direction (a daily meeting with a retreat director), celebration of daily Eucharist, optional evening prayer activities and a Reconciliation service.
