OIS Hispanic Ministry Offers Easter Retreat at Loyola on the Potomac

This past weekend, the Office of Ignatian Spirituality’s Hispanic Ministry hosted an Ignatian silent retreat at Loyola on the Potomac retreat house in Faulkner, Maryland. Retreatants traveled from Raleigh, Richmond, and Washington, DC, to participate in the weekend retreat offered in Spanish. In total, 26 people participated. 

Led by Frs. Bill Noe, SJ, and Tom Gavin, SJ, this preached retreat focused on the graces of the Easter season. The retreat included talks on Easter themes, Mass, confession, Eucharistic adoration, and spiritual companionship. 

OIS is grateful to Frs. Noe and Gavin, and the staff of Loyola on the Potomac, for providing such a peaceful and prayerful environment for retreat.
