8-Day Ignatian Silent Directed Retreat


This retreat is a privileged time for you to encounter God. Each day of the retreat consists of four 1-hour prayer periods amidst days of silence. You will be assigned a JSAV spiritual director with whom you will meet daily via online video chat. Your director will listen with you to discern the movements of God in your prayer and guide you in the direction Jesus invites.


Note: This is not a retreat in Daily Life. Retreatants are expected to book time off for the duration of the retreat and to find a place of quiet solitude to commit to this retreat (for example, a private room or a B&B). Preference will be given to those who have previously prayed the Spiritual Exercises.


Possible dates to choose from:

  1. June 25 to July 3
  2. July 4 to 12
  3. July 14 to 22


There will be an application process and a $50 registration fee (bursaries are available)


Space is limited. To reserve your spot and to be notified of final details, please email us: External link opens in new tab or windowcoordinator@jsav.ca
