Discernment & Contemplative Prayer


For all those who seek to discern God’s will, St. Ignatius provides guidelines to enter into stillness, confirming in our heart that the movement is from God, thus allowing Him to direct our steps.

This 90 minute online retreat, facilitated by Joan McGovern, is one of three retreats in our “All Things Ignatian” series this fall. You can register for this or any of the retreats individually; you do not need to attend all three. If you’d like to sign up for all three, you may do so — and receive a $10 discount — by visiting this link: ALL THINGS IGNATIAN.

This retreat offers you the opportunity to recognize God’s movements in your daily life as captured in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. Over several sessions we will delve into the spiritual tools which allow us to see God in all things.  This retreat centers on the art of DISCERNMENT. A greater understanding of God’s movement in your life will occur by using all your senses through CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER. This retreat is a dialogue between facilitator and retreatants.


*Retreat materials and the Zoom login information will not be provided until 5 business days prior to an event.*
