Style: A residential retreat that includes inputs by the retreat leader, manual work in the garden, group sharing and personal reflection.

Seeking inspiration … 

 With the help of the pilgrim and his companions some pious works such as the Catechumens, Saint Martha, the Orphans, etc., were begun in Rome” Autobiography of Saint Ignatius [98]

From the moment of his conversion in Loyola till his death, Ignatius never ceased to work for the service of others. When he later wrote the Constitutions of the Society of Jesus, the idea of being of service, or “labourers in the vineyard of the Lord” took centre-stage. For Ignatius, love is shown more by deeds than by words.
As Pope Francis reminds us, when we do the works of mercy, we have the privilege to reveal the face of God!
