November 21 - 23, 2014
A.M.D.G. stands for Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam, or “for the greater glory of God,” the motto of the Society of Jesus. The A.M.D.G. Retreat will have a new format this year, focusing on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola. It will offer an introduction to key parts of the Exercises, including the “first principle and foundation,” growing as a person who discerns, and finding God in all things.
The retreat will be a silent retreat. There will be no student talks or presentations. All presentations will be given by the Jesuit directors. No cell phones or computers will be permitted except in an extreme emergency. All students must come for an interview with Fr. Murray or Mr. Timothy O’Brien prior to the retreat. The retreat will accept only 17 students. The retreat will be open to all class years, though students will be accepted based on their past significant retreat experience, either in high school or at Loyola.
If you wish to further explore your faith through an experience of silent prayer, reflection and worship, please sign up for A.M.D.G. by November 1, 2014. Interviews will be the responsibility of the applicant to arrange with the directors. No student will be accepted without an interview. So signing up is a two-step process; on-line and an interview. For further information contact Fr. John Murray, S.J. at firstname.lastname@example.org or ext. 5881.
