Messina Retreat: An Introduction to a Reflective Life

November 6 - 8, 2015

Join us on the Messina Retreat to learn how the Ignatian story, at the heart of Loyola’s mission, can connect meaningfully to your life and unique spiritual journey. Open to students of all faith traditions and spiritualities, the weekend will offer opportunities for relationship building, tools for reflection and discernment, and an introduction to themes of Ignatian Spirituality: Finding God in all things, discernment, gratitude, personal gifts and mindful & intentional living. Through personal and group reflective experiences, this retreat creates a space for exploring who you are in relationship with self, God and others.

Students from all class years are invited to attend the Messina Retreat in either the fall or spring semester. Like most retreats at Loyola, the Messina Retreat will be held at our beautiful retreat center on 20 serene acres in the mountains of Western Maryland. You can visit the Loyola University Retreat House Website for more information.
