Members of the Class of 2019 experienced La Storta 2 from February 13-15 at the Abbey of the Genesee in Piffard, NY. The name of the retreat is derived from a critical moment in the life of St. Ignatius Loyola. On his way to seek the mission for the Society of Jesus from the Holy Father, St. Ignatius stopped at La Storta, a roadside chapel on the way to Rome. There he had a powerful prayer experience that energized the work of the Society of Jesus.
The La Storta Retreat offers seniors an experience of solitude and silence so that they may discern the movement of God in their lives as well as God’s desire for them. Retreatants are accompanied by members of the faculty/staff who have received training as Ignatian spiritual directors.
