The St Lucia Retreat and Training Centre in collaboration with the Jesuit Institute are offering foundational retreats in Ignatian Spirituality at the Centre or in the parishes.

Several young lay people from the Vicariate of Ingwavuma have been trained by the Jesuit Institute to give these retreats.

These retreats are for Lay and religious who would like to deepen their relationship with God and to learn how to be better able to help others in their relationships with God.

The retreats draw on the following insights of Ignatian Spirituality for personal prayer:

  • An introduction to Praying with Scripture: Lectio Divina & Gospel Contemplation
  • An introduction to Praying My Personal Experience: The Examen, Ignatian reflection tools for discernment
  • An introduction to some key Ignatian concepts and theology

We ask you to think of people in your parish who would benefit from this sort of retreat and to recommend them to approach us at
