Fr. Don Piraro, Fr. Whitney Miller, Nelda Turner and Judy Savoie introduce the Directed Retreat.
The directed retreat is prayerful silence and tailored to the individual needs of the retreatant. Based on the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, the retreat consists of the retreatant’s
meeting with a director once a day and praying on assigned passages from the Scriptures. This weekend helps the retreatant learn the prayer technique and prepares the person for a longer retreat.
