Our Programs

Rooted in the graces of the Spiritual Exercises. Open to all.
Ignatian Leadership for Mission Retreat

Our Ignatian Leadership for Mission (ILM) Retreat focuses on the graces of gratitude, healing, call, and co-laboring. The retreat format combines presentation, silent prayer and reflection, and group faith sharing (see below for more on the graces). The retreat is intended for both Jesuits and lay persons. 

It was initially designed as a retreat for Jesuits and lay persons who co-labor on mission in Jesuit apostolates. Over the years, however, the retreat has grown and developed, and many others have experienced these four graces through the ILM Retreat.

We invite anyone eager to experience these graces to consider joining us on retreat. Here is what a few of our participants have said about their ILM experience.

The Graces


To understand and rejoice gratefully in who we are – and who we are called to become – by God’s gracious and loving desire and design.


Grateful joy in the realization of God’s unfailingly, steadfast and forgiving love, and revealed in Christ crucified, before whom Ignatius asks, “What have I done? What am I doing? What shall I do?”


The enthusiastic desire and determination to join God and Christ in overcoming the powers of darkness, so that the light of truth and love, justice and peace might shine in our world.


To live and labor lovingly as the hands and feet, heads and hearts, of the risen Lord living and laboring in us, his Ignatian companions, Lay and Jesuit, on mission together.
