Advent marks beginnings with anticipation. A season of mystery that holds the tensions of disappointment and joy, challenge and promise, uncertainty and hope. It is arriving this year at the precise moment we are most in need of all the season offers and invites.
ISI will begin this Advent season offering a 5-day online directed retreat beginning the evening of November 30 and concluding the morning of December 6. As with all directed retreats, retreatants will be invited to honor silence and commit to several prayer periods each day, but this retreat will be prayed in your own home. Retreatants will meet each day online (or via phone) with their retreat director.
Thank you for your interest, however the Advent retreat is now full. Application for the retreat is required, and space is limited. Please complete the application form here. We will respond within 5 days of your application. ISI will ask for a retreat offering from retreatants to honor all the gifts the Lord gives us in retreat and through the retreat directors. ISI suggests a retreat offering of $200 for this retreat, however you are free to choose the amount you feel moved to give. For those able to offer more we are grateful, you are supporting those who need spiritual nourishment but are less able to offer financial support.
ISI directors have long experience in guiding others through retreat prayer. We are looking forward to praying with you through the opening days of Advent. Our directors include:
Anthony Borrow, SJ
|Ron Boudreaux, SJ||Sheila DeSantis|
|Billy Huete, SJ||Cyndy Mathews|
|MK Simion||Terri Stine|
|Joe Tetlow, SJ||Roberta Ward|
