I’m excited to be offering several Ignatian retreats in 2019, and I’m grateful to once again partner with Bon Secours Retreat Center in Marriottsville, MD where they will be held. Although the best options are the weekend retreats, my day retreats throughout the year have become popular and are a nice option for those who just want to check out how some key Ignatian spiritual practices can strengthen their relationship with God and improve their lives. To register, please click here to link up with the Bon Secours website. I hope you’ll prayerfully consider joining us on one of these upcoming transformative retreats. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at email@example.com.
Let’s make 2019 the year we get back on track so we can do more for God!
Feb. 23 Prayer Walking/Rules for Eating- This day-long retreat will focus on ways we can improve our health, both physically and spiritually. Walking is one of the easiest and cost-effective ways to exercise and when we add prayer, great things happen! St. Ignatius of Loyola integrated rules/guidelines for eating into his Spiritual Exercises knowing that for many people, paying more attention to what and how they eat can help their spiritual life. This retreat is led by Paul Gallagher.
May 17-19 The Ignatian Way- This weekend retreat provides retreatants with some key Ignatian spiritual practices which can help them grow in all areas of their lives. This retreat is led by Paul Gallagher and Nancy Marshall-Bickel.
Aug. 17 Everyday Discernment- St. Ignatius was a master of discernment, both for big and small things. We know that even the smallest decisions can have an impact on our lives. Come join us as we learn what discernment is, and how an Ignatian framework for making decisions can benefit everyone. This day-long retreat is led by Paul Gallagher.
Nov 15-17 Making All Things New- This is our signature weekend retreat, based on my doctoral work. We’ll spend our weekend looking at the connection between spirituality and health, primarily through the lens of Ignatian Spirituality. We also integrate healthy eating, cooking and prayer walking sessions into our time together. This transformative retreat will include an opportunity for retreatants to participate in a twelve week online retreat starting in January, 2020. This retreat is lead by Paul Gallagher and Nancy Marshall-Bickel.
