Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update


Please know that the staff here at Loyola on the Potomac remains vigilant in our prayers for all who are battling the (COVID-19) Coronavirus; for all the medical professionals who are working to slow down the progress of this disease; for all those who are feeling lost or isolated at this time; for all our friends, retreatants and benefactors.

Please note the following update to our programming:

All programming has been CANCELLED through Thursday, April 16, 2020.

The next programming update will appear on our website on April 10, 2020.

We remain committed to the safety and well-being of our retreatants and staff team. To date, there have been no reported cases of the virus in our Retreat House. We will continue to closely monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Archdiocese of Washington, and the State of Maryland regarding the Coronavirus and following the guidelines and mandates set forth by these agencies.

Anyone who is registered for a cancelled Retreat may transfer their deposit to a future retreat, transfer the payment as a donation to the retreat house, or request a full refund by contacting our Registrar at angel.restrepo@loyolaretreat.org .

I would ask you to please pray for us and our ministry. Like all small businesses and non-profits, we are experiencing challenging financial times. We trust that our amazing and loving Lord will guide us through this challenge and invite you to partner with us in prayer throughout this journey.

God Bless you and keep you safe. We look forward to the time we can once again invite you to Come Aside and Rest Awhile!

Thank you.
