This will be a “quiet” retreat, with periods of silence interspersed with prayer exercises based on Scripture and The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola.

After a welcome talk on Friday evening, the group will join in Evening Prayer and enter the quiet of the place. There will be shared Morning and Evening Prayer on Saturday, and Morning Prayer on Sunday. There will be four brief conferences to present the prayer exercises and to share the graces of our prayer. The celebration of the Eucharist will conclude the retreat at noon on Sunday.

The retreat is facilitated by Fr. Michael Hilbert, S.J.

St. Augustine said, “He who sings prays twice.” Prayers are twofold in this evening of sung prayers from every time and place, ranging from chant to spirituals to songs of the living composers here at St. Ignatius, from Schubert’s Ave Maria to unlikely selections by Marc Blitzstein and Meredith Monk. Longtime parishioner and cantor Bruce Rameker uses both baritone and countertenor ranges and picks from a lifetime’s collection of prayer-songs, demonstrating that there’s more than one way to pray.

Composers include Hildegard von Bingen, Schubert, Brahms, Poulenc, Ravel, Ives, Copland, Vaughan Williams, Roger Gillen, Scott Warren, Roosevelt Credit, and Bobby Reuter.

100% of your ticket cost goes directly to The Ali Forney Center in Harlem, NY, the largest agency dedicated to protecting LGBTQ youths from the harms of homelessness.
