What happens during the retreat?
Each morning, a retreat director offers a short presentation on a theme of the Spiritual Exercises and makes suggestions for your prayer. The rest of the day is spent mostly in silence, allowing you to be alone with God in prayer and recollection. Retreatants gather for Eucharist and meet again each evening for common prayer or discussion. A director meets with you individually every day in order to tailor the retreat to your particular needs and faith history.
Who may go on the Ignatian Retreat?
The Ignatian Retreat is open to members of the Fordham faculty and administration, professional staff and graduate students. No previous retreat experience is presumed, only a generous heart and a desire to deepen one’s relationship with God.
