Center for Ignatian Spirituality (Phil)

The Center for Ignatian Spirituality (CIS Phil) invites you to come away and experience the Individually Guided Holy Week Retreat. Based on Saint Ignatius of Loyola\'s Spiritual Exercises, this retreat is for men and women who long for a deep encounter with God, and who desire to pray in unity with the whole Church as it commemorates the Lord's passion, death and resurrection. It will be held on March 19-23, 2008at Sacred Heart Novitiate, Jesuit Retreat House and Seminar Center,Novaliches, Quezon City and San Jose Seminary, Ateneo de Manila University Campus, Loyola Heights, Quezon City.

Through the years, the Center for Ignatian Spirituality Philippines has been providing individually guided days of prayer based on the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola.

This individually guided retreat is a good opportunity to reflect on the past year, to savor concrete life events and to notice the uniqueway by which God invites individuals to share in His Paschal Mystery.

Distinct from the usual preached type of retreat, each retreatants is provided a guide who he/she meets each day to share fruits of prayer according to the prayer matter suggested. Retreatants pray privately three to four times a day with each prayer period lasting from thirty minutes to an hour.

The Holy Week Triduum is a very good time to take some days off from home and work in order to engage God in quiet prayer and to prepare for the great Easter mysteries. The rich liturgy of the Paschal Triduum is presided over by the Jesuit fathers of Sacred Heart Novitiate and San Jose Seminary.

The Retreat begins at dusk of Holy Wednesday, and ends mid-day of Easter Sunday.

Program Cost: Php 3,200.00 (inclusive of board and lodging and materials)
