About an 8-Day Ignatian Retreat

8-Day Ignatian Retreat

At Creighton University Retreat Center we offer 8 & 30-Day Ignatian Retreats
year-round, in hopes of meeting individual schedules.

Please review "Schedule of Retreats"  for current
8-Day or 30-Day scheduled retreats. 


The Retreat Center is hidden in God's natural setting just outside of Griswold, Iowa.
(Located between Des Moines, IA and Omaha, NE off Highway 92.)  The Center is blessed with many kinds of trees and full of a variety of birds throughout the year. 

Guests are welcome to enjoy prayer time in the St. Kateri Chapel, outdoor Stations of the Cross, Crucifix Garden, Mary's Garden, and outdoor Labyrinth and the new outside Last Supper setting.  157 acres are covered with all-natural trails leading to the Nishnabotna River and back.

We offer 4 private, efficiency apartments for retreatants that include kitchenettes.  Generally guests are responsible for their own meals.  These are simple, comfortable apartments with an open kitchen, dining, living room area, separate sleeping area and private bathrooms. 

 Fr. Bob Dufford, S.J. and our new Retreat Center Director, Kathy Kemler are available by appointment for Spiritual Direction guided with the Exercises of St. Ignatius. Please contact Terri Lou at the Retreat Center to place your reservation for a room to retreat, and/or Direction appointment or with any other questions.
