Holy Week Individually Directed Retreats (IDRs)


April 10-14, 2017
Cost: $375, includes room and all meals.

Come for a five day silent retreat with spiritual direction, following the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola. Carve out time to reconnect with the God of love who draws near. Daily Mass and Reconciliation are available during Individually Directed Retreats (IDRs).

Contemporary men and women make silent retreats for various reasons. Some are searching for a new way of knowing God that is personal and real. Others use this time to rest in the creative heart of God –to imagine new possibilities, or to sit with gratitude for God’s magnificent work. Still others have reached a time of crossroads or hurdles and come to JRH to find new strength.

Whatever your reason for making a retreat, sacred silence is a gift to the soul. Here, you will experience silence on 57 acres of woods and meadows, complete with outdoor shrines and stations of the cross to aid reflection. The 55-bedroom house provides a home away from home with three chapels, a library, and home-cooked meals.

This could be just the break you need in Lent to prepare you to enter the Paschal Triduum and welcome the joy of Easter!
