Nine Days of Grace: A Jesuit Retreat

Nine Days of Grace is a preached retreat in everyday life that offers the opportunity to nourish your spiritual life and grow closer to God. This collaboration of the Jesuit ministries of San Francisco seeks to engage your mind and heart through a series of nine liturgies – unique experiences of prayer, preaching, and petition.

Join Fr. Peter Byrne, S.J., and Megan Pryor Lorentz as we together reflect on the theme “Fall in love, Stay in love...it will make all the difference.” The theme is inspired by the appeal of Fr. Pedro Arrupe, S.J., urging the practical act of finding and falling in love with God.

Pope Francis describes an encounter with God's love which "blossoms into an enriching friendship.... We become fully human when we become more than human, when we let God bring us beyond ourselves in order to attain the fullest truth of our being." (Evangelii Gaudium, The Joy of the Gospel)

Come join others in prayer this February. Come as you are. Bring your intentions and hopes. All are welcome.
