  • Openness to God in prayer and willingness to engage faithfully in a meditative period of prayer, minimally 40 to 50 minutes each day during the time of the retreat, beginning in early October and concluding at the end of the Spring Semester.
  • Willingness to come together once a week at the College, with a group of 6 to 12 fellow retreatants, meeting under the guidance of an experienced Jesuit spiritual director/facilitator who will  guide the group through the stages of the Exercises. The group will select an acceptable day and time to meet weekly for approximately 75 minutes.
  • Commitment to be regularly present as a retreatant member, sharing your spiritual insights and experiences, while retaining the  confidentiality of the group; in the words of St. Ignatius, “for the mutual edification and support of one another”.
  • Willingness to receive and accept guidance and direction from the Jesuit facilitator as to how the group and each retreatant might continue to move forward “in the Lord” while progressing through the retreat and accepting suggestions and materials to help with prayer and meditation.

Note: Accommodations can be made for "snow birds," illness and other unexpected circumstances.
