Online 8-Day Retreat – Rest for body, soul and mind

Fri, 10th Jul 2020 @ 6:00 PM - Sat, 18th Jul 2020 @ 5:00 PM

The Jesuit Institute will be offering an online 8-day retreat that you participate in from your home. Take the time out of, and away from, your usual routine, just as you would on a residential retreat.

For this “Retreat @home for eight-days,” you will need to

  • Clear your calendar as you normally would for a retreat
  • Make your home space as free from distractions as possible
  • You would meet your director every day
  • Pray for several substantial sessions a day as you would on a residential retreat
  • Connect online for a short evening prayer liturgy with others also making the retreat


We will help you with suggestions on how to do this. This will likely be easier for those of you who live on your own or in a context where you can find quiet space. God works in all things and this may provide you with the opportunity to journey as deeply as you could have, had you been able to leave home and go to a retreat centre.

Cost: R1600 for the eight days
