Global Online Advent Retreat 2020Accompanied by the Spirit of Healing

A Global Ignatian Retreat Experience for Educators

What is it?

An Online Global Advent Retreat for Ignatian Educators

Are you looking for a new, refreshingly simple, and relevant way to pray during Advent? Join us for an online retreat grounded in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius and centered on the experience of the living God who desires a personal relationship with everyone.

This unique opportunity for faculty and staff in Jesuit and Ignatian schools around the world includes live presentations, personal reflection, and group sharing.

The prayers of the First Spiritual Exercises have the power to invite growth and ignite freedom if you dare to be open to experience such an encounter!

Why might this be for you?

  • Some Ignatian sustenance for your soul at a time of uncertainty
  • An opportunity to be in retreat with new companions from Jesuit schools across the world
