Throughout the Bible God reveals himself on mountaintops. In fact, we speak of "mountaintop experiences" in our lives--those moments where we have had a deep experience of God. This retreat will follow the prayers of the Spiritual Exercises in hopes that through silence and prayer these will be days of encountering our God who desires to reveal himself to us.

Brad Held entered the Society of Jesus in 2006 and ordained to the priesthood in June 2017. He was born and raised just outside of Milwaukee, WI. He attended Marquette University in Milwaukee, which is where he discerned a call to priesthood and came to see the Jesuits as the path through which he was to answer that call. Since entering the Jesuits he has studied at Fordham University and Boston College. He has taught at Red Cloud High School on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and Marquette University High School in Milwaukee. Since June 2019, he has served as Pastor of Holy Rosary Mission, which encompasses the nine Catholic Churches on the Pine Ridge Reservation.
