Ignatian Spiritual Exercises
Join Creatio for a weekend of spiritual growth and adventure in the wilderness of Woodland Park, CO (1.5 hours from Denver). We will be following The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius.
The Spiritual Exercises are a compilation of meditations, prayers, and contemplative practices developed by St. Ignatius Loyola to help people deepen their relationship with God. For centuries “The Exercises” were most commonly given as a longer retreat of about 30 days in solitude and silence. Father John Ignatius (Chaplain of the University of Denver, Founder of Servants of Christ Jesus), the Fraternas, and Creatio will be leading a condensed version over two days filled with moments of prayer, hiking, and solitude in the wilderness – all while growing in community with other young adults. Mass on Sunday and Confession will also be available.
We are being hosted by the El Tesoro Retreat Center in Woodland Park, Colorado.
Young adults 21 and older are invited, and carpooling is available from Denver.
