"The Resurrection shows us that there is always hope. Whether or not we see it, it is there or, more precisely, He is there."


James Martin, SJ from Jesus: A Pilgrimage



This virtual retreat requires access to a computer. You can participate in live Zoom meetings with a computer, tablet, smartphone, cell or landline phone.


There will be 3 live online Zoom meetings each day:

10:00 am: The day’s scriptures and focus

5:00 pm: Prayer Practices

7:00 pm: Optional sharing with one’s spiritual director and a small group


In order to maintain the personal feeling of the retreat and to allow for individual spiritual direction with an assigned director, enrollment will be limited to 20 participants.




During this unusual time, Mercy Center will be offering an online June Ignatian retreat to continue the practice of our yearly Ignatian retreat.  This is time in which we will revisit events in Jesus’ life and our own.


The new format will be a combination of live reflections from our experienced team, daily one on one spiritual direction sessions, and materials to support your individual spiritual practices. These offerings will include daily scriptures, icons, videos, music, poetry, and art options.
