4-Week Ignatian Retreat: Weeks #1-2 (Wednesday Evenings)

Join us in a four-week, everyday life journey of Ignatian Spirituality through “Week #1” and “Week #2” of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola. The Exercises are mediations, prayers, and contemplative practices developed by St. Ignatius and structured into four “weeks” or movements.

This 4-Week Ignatian Retreat covers the following movements of the Spiritual Exercises:
Week #1: God’s unconditional love for us, healing, being a loved sinner, total forgiveness.
Week #2: Greater freedom, discipleship, knowing and walking with Jesus more intimately.

The 4-Week Ignatian Retreat Weeks #1-2 is offered every Fall.
The 4-Week Ignatian Retreat Weeks #3-4 is offered every Spring.

Completing two 4-Week Ignatian Retreats (Part 1 and Part 2) would be the equivalent of an 8-Week Ignatian Retreat in everyday life. Two 4-Week Ignatian Retreats fulfill a key requirement for the Spiritual Exercises 19th Annotation Retreat (offered every October at JRC) and for spiritual directors seeking certain credentials or spiritual development.

Overall, this Ignatian retreat in everyday life is ideal for anyone seeking to explore or deepen one’s relationship with God and take the next step in one’s spiritual journey.

Each Wednesday at 7pm via Zoom, we meet as a group for prayer (10 mins), a presentation (30 mins), and we share the graces from our week of prayer (40-50 mins). Each week, the retreatant meets with a retreat director for about 55 minutes (at a scheduled time agreed upon by the retreatant and their director).

A retreatant:

  • Commits to praying the assigned spiritual exercises 45-60 minutes daily for this retreat.
  • Keeps a daily journal noting God’s activity and the retreatant’s response during their prayer.
  • Participates and shares in each of our four group sessions on Wednesday evenings.
  • Meets with a retreat director once a week (scheduled by the retreatant and their director).

Our presenter and facilitator, Fr. Paul O’Connor, S.J., JRC Director of Mission & Identity, guides us through this experience with other Ignatian leaders and retreat directors. For any questions, please contact Fr. Paul at poconnor@jesuitretreatcenter.org
