Retreat ministry is one of the ministries that was very close to the heart of St. Ignatius. From the early beginnings of the Society of Jesus, we have been involved in transforming lives through this ministry. The Spiritual Exercises, that St. Ignatius wrote, is one of the life transforming means to reach God. Jesuits in Karnataka have been serving thousands of religious and laity through this ministry. The three retreat houses that we run, Dhyanashrama in Bengaluru, Xavier Sadan in Mysuru, and Fatima Retreat House in Mangaluru, cater to the spiritual thirst of today’s Catholics. “Come, relax, be still and have a vacation with God.”
