Get Started

Individually Directed Retreats

Give yourself the gift of a week of stillness and prayer on a silent individually directed retreat.

Paired with a spiritual director experienced in facilitating the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola, embark on a prayer journey to help you see God in your daily life and notice God stirring the depths of your heart. 

Pope Francis tells us, “The journey of life is precisely this: journeying in order to meet Jesus.”

Each day you will meet with a spiritual director and have the opportunity to participate in the celebration of the Eucharist, worship in Eucharistic adoration, enjoy the serenity of our grounds, and spend time in silent prayer and reflection.

2022 IDR Dates

The 2022 Summer Individually Directed Retreats at Bellarmine will be open for registration in late February 2022.  We will host one Thursday, June 23 to Friday, July 1 and one Friday, July, 15 to Saturday, July 23, 2022. 


Directed retreats are traditionally eight days long. If you are unable to stay for the full retreat, you may abbreviate your retreat and register for a five day retreat.  

The Five Day retreat is $575 (less than $136 per night), and requires just a $100 deposit.  The Eight Day retreat is $975 (less than $122 a night), with a non-refundable $100 deposit due at the time of registration (which is applied to your total fee for the retreat).   

Registrations will be accepted for a minimum of five days.  If you need to change the number of days you are registering for, you must do so at least two weeks prior to the beginning of the retreat. After that, there are no refunds for early departures.
