Need some time to reflect and get things together? A weekend silent retreat may be just right for you, to help escape the craziness of daily life and give you a chance to sort things out. Priests from the Legionaries of Christ direct Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius at various tranquil retreat centers in our area, where you can take time to be alone with the Lord and rediscover a spirituality rooted in the Gospels. It consists of guided meditations, personal prayer, opportunities for reconciliation and spiritual direction.
