Jesuit Spiritual Center at Milford

Jesuit Spiritual Center 

For  over 90 years, the Jesuit Spiritual Center at Milford has enriched the spiritual life of those seeking God through prayer, reflection and quiet discernment. It is here that people come to strengthen their relationship with God, and to experience God’s presence in the everyday experiences of their lives.

Serving All People Seeking God 

Today the Center provides spiritual opportunities to over 13,000 people a year.  The Ignatian Weekend Retreats, that began in 1929, continue to offer a traditional, preached experience modeled on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. The Personally Directed Retreats, lasting up to eight days, offer retreatants a quiet, solitary time of introspection and prayer guided by an experienced spiritual director.  The Center offers a 30-day retreat for those individuals longing to fully engage the Spiritual Exercise in their lives and decisions.

"Give praise to the Lord, proclaim His name;

make known among the nations what He has done." - Psalm 105:1

The Center also sponsors youth retreats, building on the spiritual formation already undertaken by parents, parishes and schools. Tens of thousands of youth have made retreats at the Jesuit Spiritual Center and upon leaving, many of them voice the same sentiment – they are encouraged that they are not alone, that others think and feel as they do, and encouraged that in all their thoughts, questions and doubts, God is with them.

The Jesuit Spiritual Center offers evening and day programs that focus on particular topics. The multi-use facilities provide rental venues for faith-based organizations to host their own retreats. With everything it does, the Center seeks to promote spiritual refreshment for all who come to it, and likewise to impart to every retreatant and visitor that God is all around us, if only we pause a while to listen and take notice.

We are excited to welcome new members to our team! We have several exciting positions available so take a look by clicking on the "Jobs" page.
