Welcome to the Midwest Jesuits Retreat Centers


Ignatian spirituality is the heart and soul of the Jesuit mission. Jesuit retreats offer a path to anyone seeking to practice this spirituality more deeply and find God in all things.

The Midwest Jesuits have 10 retreat ministries in seven states, serving everyone from high school students and young adults, people experiencing homelessness and addiction, busy professionals looking for quiet, and seasoned retreatants traveling an ongoing journey to grow closer to God.
