We are happy to share that Loyola University’s Office of Mission Integration will once again offer the Baltimore community the opportunity to pray the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola during the 2024-25 academic year.  Over the past eight years, nearly 250 people from all walks of life and from within and beyond the Beltway have availed themselves of this opportunity.

Our approach will be one that Ignatius himself proposed for busy people – a way to make a prayerful and potentially transformative retreat in everyday life.  Over the course of nine months of daily prayer with Scripture, journaling, and regular conversation with a guide, one can experience the same graced movements and discoveries that a privileged few get to make in 30 days of secluded silence.  While there are obvious challenges to making the retreat while still immersed in the world, those who persevere come to see how both their prayer and daily routines are gracefully enriched.  The long retreat is undeniably a significant commitment of time and resolve – one that may not be right for everyone or perhaps not right at this time.
