Advent with the Jesuit Center for Spiritual Growth
December 06, 2017 - December 21, 2017

The Jesuit Center for Spiritual Growth in Wernersville, PA, is offering several programs and retreats during the Advent season. For more information, visit www.JesuitCenter.org or contact Melinda Leonowitz at mleonowitz@jesuitcenter.org.



Dec. 6: Advent Day of Prayer – Fr. Jack Barron, SJ

Program 1 (10am – 2pm) & Program 2 (5pm – 9pm)

During the season of Advent, we prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ. Spend a day at the Jesuit Center “getting into the spirit" and readying yourself to welcome Jesus into your life.

Arrival is between 8:30 AM and 9:15 AM (continental breakfast). The program will begin at 9:30 AM and will include input from Fr. Jack Barron, SJ, opportunities for quiet prayer & Reconciliation, lunch, and Mass. The program will end at 3:00 PM.


Dec. 8-10: Weekend Directed Retreat

A weekend directed retreat is a privileged means of deepening one’s intimacy with God. It is an individualized, personal, two-day experience of prayer, guided by a companion, a trained spiritual director. The assigned director, either a Spiritual Growth staff member or one of our Associate or Guest Directors, will meet with you individually on Saturday and Sunday to help you to process your prayer and discern the movement of the Spirit. Our directed retreats are conducted in silence, because in the stillness of the retreat, one can be free of daily concerns and better hear the quiet voice of God.

During each retreat, liturgy is offered each day, and there are opportunities for Reconciliation, Eucharistic Adoration, and massage (also for a modest fee). All linens and meals are provided.

Arrival is between 4:00 and 5:45 PM on Friday evening, followed by dinner, meeting with your director, and the opening prayer service.

Departure is on Sunday at 2:00 PM.


Dec. 9: Christmas Recital 7 PM – David Gross and Catherine & Neil Fronheiser


Dec. 15-21: 5-Day Advent Directed Retreat

A directed retreat is a privileged means of deepening one’s intimacy with God. It is an individualized, personal experience of prayer over a number of days, guided by a companion, a trained spiritual director. The assigned director, either a Spiritual Growth staff member or one of our Associate or Guest Directors, will meet with you individually on a daily basis to help you to process your prayer and discern the movement of the Spirit.
