Jesuit retreat centers can be found in places ranging from New England’s rocky coast to the foothills of the Rockies and the rustic trails of Santa Clara Valley. They are part of urban landscapes too.
Most houses offer an assortment of spiritual renewal programs centered around Ignatian spirituality. For example, “guided” retreats for groups often center on a theme—which could be the Lenten journey, or men and women in recovery, or some other focus. There are also “directed” retreats made by individuals. A retreat can draw together people who have never met each other. Or it could involve members of a parish youth group or colleagues at a Catholic school. Retreats can run for three hours, or 30 days, and durations in between.
