The Ignatian Eight-Week Retreat in Everyday Life mirrors the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, but in an abbreviated format. Retreatants go about their everyday life, but commit to pray each day, following a guided structure of readings and reflections. We will gather weekly for these eight weeks to share the fruit of each one’s prayer.

Earth Tones ministry reflects our reverence for Earth by encouraging an understanding and awareness of God and nature. Volunteers help us continue our community gardens, chickens and apiary operations, which supply produce, eggs and honey to food banks to help reduce food insecurity among our neighbors.
We appreciate your contribution to help us maintain our contemplative space, whether it’s for an hour or for the entire day! Tasks may include but are not limited to: weeding, gardening, labyrinth maintenance, grapevine pruning, statue painting, wood chopping and weed whacking.
