This Advent, we invite you to prepare to celebrate the Incarnation by participating in an Ignatian Advent Retreat in Daily Life! The Ignatian Spirituality Center at Saint Thomas More will provide you with daily readings, teachings from Ignatian spirituality, and reflection questions to help you enter fully into the Advent season.
In addition to daily personal prayer, you will attend weekly small group meetings (led by an experienced retreat facilitator) to share your prayer experience and ask questions. If you choose an in-person meeting option, your retreat facilitator will provide you with a prayer booklet at your first meeting. If you choose a virtual meeting option, we will email you a PDF of the prayer booklet before your first meeting. We will have extra physical copies at the parish office if you would like to pick one up.We hope you will enjoy setting aside time each day to slow down and anticipate the hope, love, and true joy of Christmas! Please register on the Ignatian Spirituality Center's website!
Ignatian retreats are based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius
of Loyola. Traditionally, the Spiritual Exercises are experienced by
going away to a retreat center for silent prayer and meditation. Our
retreats "in daily life" are designed to help participants experience the Exercises by spending about 30 minutes in silent prayer at home each
Registration can be found the on Ignatian Spirituality Center at Saint Thomas More's website.

There is no charge for this retreat. If you feel called to support the work of the Center, there will be an opportunity at the end of the retreat to make a donation to make future events like this possible.
