Let us provide a sacred space for your soul to breathe

St. Ignatius

RETREAT Offerings


– a gentle prayer journey through the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, guided by a trauma-informed spiritual director who is also a trained Ignatian retreat facilitator. This 19th annotation retreat requires about an hour or so of time in prayer per day over at least an 8 month period and can be experienced individually with a trained director. A shorter 18th annotation retreat is also available individually with a trained director.

A cohort of Spiritual Exercises in Everyday Life, an in-person group experience of the 19th annotation retreat September through May, is expected to be offered in alternating years. Reach out for more information.

We suggest a regular practice of daily prayer and Ignatian contemplation (entering the Gospel scene), along with regular spiritual direction, as an ideal preparation in advance of this long retreat.

For more information, fill out our retreat contact form.

The sanctuary cottage is available for quiet spiritual retreat rental Thursday through Saturday evenings and occasionally during the week. Spiritual direction may be available for an additional charge. 

Quiet days may also be arranged with advance notice.​ Please reach out for more information.

I cannot express my gratitude enough for you having this place of retreat for me. This time allowed me to reflect, think clearly, and put in new practices for myself that I am looking forward to continuing after I’ve gone back to normal life. This was so valuable to me. Thank you.

I had the space, time and quiet to just “be” and to let myself think and feel things that had been buried or ignored in the busyness of life. Having a guide through this was integral.

This directed retreat was what my heart needed. A beautiful space to decompress and with the simplicity of the place you end up listening to a symphony of song, witness the rhythms of nature and notice the unique beauty each day brings. Gently reminding me of all the gifts of grace God has already given to me, I only need to receive them!

– a group directed retreatant

Solitary cottage retreats have proven invaluable to me to allow continued revelation and ministry of the Holy Spirit in the very space where the holy work in me began in each particular spiritual direction session. It’s always been amazing to me how the precious Holy Spirit/Healer/Lover of my soul/Tender Shepherd remained and enlarged and ministered and cared for me during these times of retreat, bringing me to a more intimate relationship with Him and with myself.

This weekend has been one of rest, reflection, and healing. I have craved and felt pulled to the quiet for quite some time. I cannot thank you enough for providing me this sacred space of retreat. I feel completely renewed. To the next guest, I have prayed fervently over your stay here.
