Description: 

The Weekend Ignatian Retreat is a silent retreat built around the elements of the Examen prayer of St. Ignatius of Loyola. The prayer invites retreatants to review their lives from a prayerful and God-centered perspective. Retreat Chaplains will offer reflections to guide personal prayer time and are available for one-on-one spiritual conversation. This retreat, in the Christian and Catholic tradition, is open to Georgetown graduate and undergraduate students, alumni, faculty and staff of all faiths. Priority is given to undergraduate students.
