3-Day Silent Ignatian Retreat

A 3-day retreat is great for first-timers and those with busy schedules.  These retreats allow one to become more comfortable with the silence that becomes a necessary component of a fruitful retreat. These Silent Ignatian Retreats are an opportunity to listen to God and become more aware of God’s love and how it manifests in your life.

Different types:

- Attend a 3-Day Silent Ignatian Retreat with a small group

- Plan your own individual, private retreat

- Register for retreats offered for women or men only

Individual Private Ignatian Retreat

You can make a reservation for a private, individual directed, silent retreat with Dir. Kathy Kemler or possibly Fr. Bob Dufford, SJ.  You are welcome to pose your own dates and we would check with their schedules in advance of confirming the reservation.

A few more details that may be helpful to know; guests on private retreats stay in efficiency apartments and prepare their own meals.  The apartment has a combined living/dining area, bedroom area and private bathroom.  The kitchenette includes a refrigerator with freezer, microwave, drip coffee maker (& filters), toaster, electric skillet, hot plate and sink.  There are miscellaneous glasses/cups, dishes/bowls & silverware; however, no food, so plan for simple meals including the salt/pepper.  Dish soap/dish towels, bedding & bath towels are provided too.  It is a private unit that is just steps away from the woods where the deer and wild turkey roam.

Suggested stipend is $40/session and the room rate is $55/per night per person.
