The Ignatian Spiritual Exercises are offered today to people who want to take their Christian life and their relationship to God more seriously. Jesuits sponsor retreat houses all over the world where people can go for silence and communion with God. Retreats vary in length from the traditional full 30 days, to 8 days, 5 days, weekends and single days.
The USA Northeast Province sponsors two centers in Massachusetts and one in New Jersey that specialize in Ignatian Retreats and Spiritual Direction - Campion Renewal Center, in Weston, Mass., Eastern Point Retreat House, in Gloucester, Mass. and Loyola Jesuit Center, in Morristown, N.J.
