First Spiritual Exercises

The retreat was composed by Michael Hansen SJ and is based on the Spiritual Exercises by St Ignatius of Loyola.  This retreat is a way of encountering the Creator as Love in your everyday life through a program of personal prayer and attending a weekly gathering of guided spiritual conversation.

There are no special requirements to undertake this retreat just a desire to deepen your relationship with God and find God's presence in your everyday life.   Be assured that where you are now is where God is waiting for you.

  • Individual prayer is guided by a Prayer Handbook, “The First Spiritual Exercises: Four Guided Retreats”by Michael Hansen, S.J.
