La Storta Retreat 1

Members of the Class of 2019 experienced McQuaid Jesuit’s inaugural La Storta Retreat from December 12-14 at Notre Dame Retreat House in Canandaigua, 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.

This is the first of two La Storta Retreats offered to the Class of 2019. The next retreat is February 13-15, 2019. Sign up in Campus Ministry today!
