When the Spiritual Exercises in Everyday Life comes to a close, many desire to look back upon their retreat experience to reflect upon and understand it more deeply. Others respond to a desire to learn more about Ignatian Spirituality and some are interested in training to become an Ignatian prayer guide.

Prayer Companions is a 2 year program for those who have made the Spiritual Exercises in Everyday Life or, experienced the Spiritual Exercises in a 30 Day silent retreat. Participants explore and learn about the dynamics of the Spiritual Exercises, Ignatian ways of praying, and spiritual discernment among other topics.

The program serves two groups:

  1. Those who wish to explore in greater depth their experience of the Spiritual Exercises to determine if they are called to become Ignatian prayer guides.
  2. Those who, for their own personal development and growth, want to enrich and deepen their experiences of the Spiritual Exercises.

The program format includes presentations, interactive work and group discussion.

The next Prayer Companions class begins on September 16, 2017 from 9am - 11:30am and runs each month through April 2018 (except December). We have classes on September 16, October 14, November 18, January 6, February 3, March 3, and April 7.

The fee for Prayer Companions is $175 for each year or $350 total.
