People with hectic lives can still build a personal relationship with God through The Ursuline Center’s Ignatian Retreat in Daily Life. Based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola (founder of the Jesuits), the retreat is perfect for busy people who are searching for something more in life.
Unlike other retreats, the Ignatian Retreat in Daily Life lets people continue with their everyday obligations. It only requires 30-45 minutes once a week for eight weeks in the company of a spiritual director, and 30 minutes daily private-time for personal prayer. The times of meetings are prayer are flexible. However, it is suggested that the first meeting be before Ash Wednesday, March 5. Meetings will be held at the Ursuline Motherhouse. Donation is $75 and covers eight meetings, a book and handouts.
Eileen W. Novotny, director of program development for The Ursuline Center and an Ursuline Associate, is the spiritual director of the retreat. She will help participants discover how to tap into their personal relationship with Jesus. She holds a Master of Arts in Theology from Duquesne University, a Certificate in Spiritual Direction from John Carroll University, and retired after 25 years’ service in the Diocese of Youngstown.
