Praying with Ignatius of Loyola and John of the Cross

31st January – 2nd February

Ewa Bem IBVM

In the 16th Century, Ignatius of Loyola founded the Jesuits, an apostolic religious order. Later in that same century, John of the Cross was instrumental in refounding the monastic order of the Carmelites. During this weekend retreat, we will reflect on their lives and legacy, and allow their prayer to touch our own. This will be a silent retreat, with workshops.
