Christ the King Retreat Center or “King’s House” is run by the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate. The retreat house opened in 1952 and is located 40 miles west of Minneapolis on a bluff overlooking Buffalo Lake. Its tree-covered grounds provide a sacred place of meditation and quiet time. All retreatants will have private rooms so that they will have the solitude needed to make their retreat.
As this is an Ignatian retreat, the conferences will incorporate the teachings of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus. Saint Ignatius developed The Spiritual Exercises—a compilation of meditations, prayers, and contemplative practices—which were originally meant to be prayed with on a 30-day silent retreat. This Ignatian retreat will draw on many of the themes in these Spiritual Exercises with a trained spiritual director who will guide you over the course of the weekend.
Fr. Christopher P. Johnson, S.J. currently currently serves as the V.P. for Mission & Identity at Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School in Indianapolis. He entered the society of Jesus in August 2004. He earned a M.A. in philosophy and an advanced graduate certificate in spiritual direction. He was ordained at Boston College in 2014. Over the years, he has provided spiritual direction and directed many retreats for various groups.
