Demontreville Jesuit Retreat House welcomes men of all Christian faiths and denominations. Attendance is required from Thursday supper until Sunday at 7:30 pm. If a person cannot be present for the entire weekend, we ask that you come on a different weekend when you can be present for the entire retreat.
Personal Reflection and Prayer
Each weekend retreat offers a time for quiet reflection and prayer, spiritual renewal, and consideration of how the Lord is calling a person to live out his faith. The Jesuit Retreat Director guides the group using the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola. Each day, the Retreat Director offers four or five conferences that give the participants material for reflection. After each conference, there is time for quiet reflection and prayer. Collectively, each man creates a silent environment when he commits himself to a weekend of silence. This silence allows each man to focus on listening to the word of God and to pray quietly without distractions. We hold to the wisdom of our tradition: “The silence of a man makes audible the voice of God and disposes a man to pray.”
