Some centres listed on these pages of European Jesuit Spirituality
Centres offer extensive and varied programmes of retreat from the full
Spiritual Exercises of 30 days to single days of prayer and reflection.
Some offer training in the Spirituality of Ignatius Loyola. Other houses
specialise in youth or other pre-booked groups. Only one or two centres
are open for people wanting to spend a night or two on holiday, most
will only accept people who want to spend time in quiet reflection and
prayer. Often a priest or other guide will be around if you want to
talk over things.
If you need time away for rest, prayer and discernment, then many of
these houses would welcome you. Most expect a contribution towards costs,
many have a fixed charge, others suggest an offering. If an offering
is suggested then if you can afford it, whatever you would pay for a
days lodging in a simple hotel, hostel or guest house in the area would
probably be a good guide.
Not all the centres listed have a regular programme or are open to
the general public. If you want to know any more about a centre than
given on these pages then please contact them directly for more details.
