8-Day Summer Individually Directed Retreat (IDR)

This retreat is full. Please register for one of our future Individually Directed Retreats.

Since 1898, the grounds of Jesuit Retreat Center have provided spiritual peace for people looking to deepen their relationship with God. Now, perhaps more than ever, the sacred space of JRC is a vital gift to Northeast Ohio.

Individually Directed Retreats are a time of sacred silence, an invitation to step away from the pressures and demands of daily responsibilities, and an opportunity for sustained personal prayer. These retreats are ideal for anyone seeking to explore or deepen one's relationship with God and take the next step in his or her spiritual journey. You will be accompanied by a trained and certified spiritual director who will meet with you daily during the retreat. Spiritual directors draw on a variety of resources in accompanying retreatants, which may include scripture, contemplative prayer, poetry and music, and the wisdom of Ignatius from the Spiritual Exercises.

Availability of directors depends upon retreat schedule.

Spiritual Directors for this retreat:

  • Paul O’Connor, SJ
  • DonnaMarie Kaminsky
  • Terrie Kiley
  • Bill Hobbs

IDR cost includes room, board and director’s stipend. Daily Mass and Reconciliation available.

JRC is dedicated to maintaining a safe environment that complies with Governor DeWine's orders to ensure the best possible care and safety for our guests and staff.
