About:  A Four Week Retreat in Daily Life

This First Spiritual Exercises retreat runs over four weeks in daily life. It guides you in prayer and reflection for 30mins each day. The retreat is for anyone who desires to grow in their relationship with God.

  • There are five 90min group meetings.
  • These sessions guided by trained givers of the First Spiritual Exercises. 
  • It is suggested that you purchase “The First Spiritual Exercises: Four Guided Retreats” book by Michael Hansen SJ ahead of the retreat.
