Why make a retreat?
A retreat is a time to come away from our ordinary activities, to rest, pray, and invite God to renew our spirits. It is an opportunity to gain perspective and to find new meaning for our lives. Loyola on the Potomac offers a variety of retreat experiences: Individually Directed Retreats, Private Retreats, Days of Prayer, Holy Week Triduum Retreat, New Year’s Eve Retreat and Special Ignatian Retreats on Specific Ignatian Themes. Loyola is also available to host other retreats.
All things in this world are gifts of God, created for us, to be the means by which we can come to know him better, love him more surely and serve him more faithfully.
St. Ignatius of Loyola
