4-Day Silent Ignatian Retreat

4-Day Silent Ignatian Retreat

Directed by Fr. Gary Coulter


Directed by Fr. Gary Coulter

  • 4-Day Silent Directed Ignatian Retreat for Men or Women (during UNL Spring Break)

    Ignatian Retreats, based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, are also known as silent retreats. The heart of the Ignatian Retreat involves spending four or five prayer periods each day in meditation on scripture. Thus the real director of an Ignatian Retreat is the Holy Spirit. 

    The retreat is marked by a complete silence, as there are no common prayers or devotions outside of Mass and Exposition, and no social time as even the meals are taken in silence to continue the reflection and prayerful atmosphere. Retreatants journal about each of their prayer times and the movements that occurred there, so that when they meet with the director, they can be given guidance and appropriate scripture passages for their meditation. Fr. Coulter suggests reading Meditation and Contemplation by Father Timothy Gallagher, OMV to learn more on the Ignatian methods of meditating on Scripture.

    The Silent Directed Ignatian Retreat will begin with a 7 PM meeting and then Holy Hour on Monday night, check-in from 6-7 PM. Please note that there will not be a Mass nor a meal served the night you arrive. Your cooperation with the complete silence is greatly appreciated for the other retreatants. You will sign-up for daily individual meetings with Fr. Coulter, and be expected to spend at least four prayer periods each day in the spiritual exercises. Retreatants should bring a bible, journal, and spiritual reading.

    The retreat ends on Thursday with a noon Lunch.
