Testimonials from past retreat participants:
  • The presenters were dynamic and relatable, meeting the faithful where they’re at. They are Christ-centered, concise and articulate. I really feel like I could relate to you all and that you care about us. -Will, Immaculata, PA
  • I loved being able to get away from my normal schedule and really dedicate time to God in a new way. I definitely plan on using these new methods of prayer. -Hunter, Ave Maria, FL
  • I’d be surprised if a single retreatant went home without at least one talk having set his or her heart on fire. -Tom, Chicago, IL
  • I found it helpful to experience silence and to learn about the life of Ignatius. His life is encouraging and relevant to the struggles young adults face. -Erin, San Antonio, TX
