Spiritual Exercises for Women
The Spiritual Exercises are silent retreats based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola. Following the original format of the Ignatian retreat, the Spiritual Exercises take you through a profound experience of getting to know Christ. You will see him with new eyes through a fresh reading of the Scriptures and through a golden silence which weeds out distractions so as to help you discern God’s voice in your soul.
