about us

Loyola Retreat House is an institution of the Society of Jesus located in the Sanctuary of Loyola. It was founded in 1972, in a building that had been a centre for the formation of Jesuits for decades.

The purpose of the House is to promote Ignatian spirituality through retreats and courses.

We want to preserve the most authentic experience of St. Ignatius of Loyola, bringing spirituality for today's world using new language and forms.

A team of Jesuits, lay people and a community of religious sisters work in the house.

the house

The house has spacious and comfortable facilities that promote an environment of silence, essential to a deeply lived encounter with God:

  • capacity for 152 people in single, double and triple rooms complete with bathrooms
  • seven chapels and oratories
  • direct access to the Chapel of the Conversion
  • conference room with multimedia equipment and simultaneous translation booths
  • conference hall with multimedia equipment
  • five classrooms for work sessions
  • twelve classrooms for small groups and personal accompaniment
  • four dining rooms
  • wifi and computer room with common printer
  • private park of 20 hectares and parking

the spiritual exercises

They are a process, a path, which help us to find God and discover his will in our own lives. They are born from the experience of Saint Ignatius of Loyola himself in the sixteenth century and since then they have helped people of all times and places to live for God by engaging in the world.

In Loyola, we offer Ignatian retreats in different ways:

  • personalized and to groups
  • varying lengths: weekend, five days, eight days, a month
  • for young people and adults, lay people, religious, priests
  • for beginners and for those with more experience
  • inspired by the Ignatian text and opened to other perspectives: family, ecology, etc.

There is always an ambience of silence, time for prayer, and personal accompaniment
