Who should attend:  CKS students, alumni, lay ecclesial ministers, deacons, religious, priests and others wishing to come to the seminary’s peaceful setting for a special encounter with the Lord.  Those who minister to other people need to minister to themselves.

Retreat Directors:  Scheduled directors include Sr. Mary Ellen Twist, RSM, Rev. Richard Reina, and Rev. Msgr. James Wall, who are highly trained and experienced in Ignatian-style retreats.  A period of time is set aside for you to meet with your director each day. 

Program:  This is a silent retreat.  There is flexibility in the program to meet your unique needs. Optional daily activities include Eucharist and evening prayer.  The campus offers beautiful natural spaces with trails, open fields and woods in which to walk and meditate.
