Life-Changing SEEL Retreat Invitation
Are you interested in growing closer to Christ, improving your prayer life, and/or talking with a spiritual director? Do you live in the Columbia Valley of Washington State? The Spiritual Exercises in Everyday Life (SEEL Tri-Cities, WA) could be just what you need. Those who participate in the Spiritual Exercises are changed for life!
Preparation Days Retreat
This year, SEEL begins with a five-week Preparation Days Retreat, which runs 5 Monday evenings, September 10 – October 8, 6:30 – 8 PM, at St. Patrick’s Parish Child Care Center in Pasco, WA. We will provide guided meditations, talks on certain points of Ignatian Spirituality and the life of St. Ignatius, more about how to begin praying. Each meeting will also include small group faith sharing and personal prayer time. You’ll receive a journal you can use that includes all the information you’ll need to begin praying the Spiritual Exercises Preparation Days Retreat and a booklet that will help you write your faith autobiography.
Spiritual Exercises in Everyday Life
After the first five weeks, in October when the Preparation Days Retreat is complete, those who wish, can continue into the full Spiritual Exercises in Everyday Life.
During the Spiritual Exercises in Everyday Life, participants:
- Are assigned a trained spiritual director with whom you’ll meet at least bi-weekly, and who will give you the materials to pray with.
- Pray for an hour daily on your own time with materials provided.
- Attend group meetings [first and third Mondays, starting the third Monday of October- Oct 15, 6:30 – 8 PM, St. Patrick’s School, Pasco WA].
- Keep a journal of your faith journey.
Deadline for the Preparation Days Retreat application is September 1, 2018. To apply, send in the application or contact us. Space is limited, so please apply early.
