Retreats for the Homeless

The weather is cold, snowy and miserable here in the Midwest — a good time to think about the homeless among us. Get acquainted with the Ignatian Spirituality Project, a mission that brings the graces of the Spiritual Exercises to the poor and homeless. It’s remarkable. (If you can’t see the video, click here.)

  1. I’m in tears… I’m from Visalia, CA. I was praying the rosary, and on the first our father I just said to myself “homeless retreat”. Know I know it was not my own idea. I believe it to have been heavenly enlightenment from the Holy Spirit. So I googled that and this came up. Saw your video and here I am Lord! May Your will be done! My heart is on fire!! It literally is! Have it my way we’d get some people we know to come talk to anyone who’d like to stay after lunch in our church cafeteria we have for the homeless today!! Our parish is THE GOOD SHEPPARD. We are part of the Fresno dioses. How can we help the homless! How can someone talk to one of our priests to get all this started? Also, God keep blessing your work! This is AMAZING!!!

  2. I would like to start this retreat in Shaw MS. Where can I get the necessary training and materials to begin?
