Ignatian Retreat in Allentown, NJ, Feb. 17-19

Father Carlos Hamel of the Fraternity of Saint Joseph the Guardian will preach a retreat based on the Ignatian Exercises, at the church of Saint John the Baptist, 1282 Yardville-Allentown Road, Allentown, New Jersey. The Spiritual Exercises comprise an ordered series of meditations and contemplations born from the profound spiritual experience St Ignatius, gained from his conversion and his time as the first Superior General of the Society of Jesus. These exercises purpose to help the retreatant discern God’s will for his own life.

The retreat will begin on the early afternoon of Friday, February 17 and finish on the afternoon of Sunday February 19 (Presidents’ day weekend).

In order to cover the expenses (Fr. Carlos’ travel from France, food, donation to the parish, etc) we suggest a donation of $60. Also, please bring a sleeping bag.

In addition to the meditations, the traditional Mass will be sung each day, as well as parts of the Divine Office; there will also be plenty of opportunities for spiritual direction and Confession.
