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.

19th Annotation Program
The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius:
A Retreat in Daily Life
The “Retreat in Daily Life” is given over 10 months. It involves 60-75 minutes of daily prayer, 15-30 minutes of journaling everyday, a weekly 1 hour meeting with an Exercises director, and attendance at a Faith Sharing Conference every 4-5 weeks. All Faith Sharing Conferences will be on Sundays from 2-4 pm. We will begin the journey together with a 1½ day orientation and conclude with a ½ day “Sending Off” retreat. We have directors available in Rancho Palos Verdes, Norwalk, San Gabriel Valley, and Santa Clarita.
