Is your daily life bursting at the seams? Busy, distracted, tired? We live with so much noise and so many commitments--do we have the time, the energy, the mental space to hear God's call? Here's your chance to take a day to start listening.

Join us for our first iWISSH retreat, an intimate one-day gathering in the beautiful, peaceful environment of Effie Yeaw Nature Center.

We will spend the day getting to know one another, playing, praying, and learning. It will take place in the Assembly Building, which is handicap accessible. Lunch will be provided.

Our theme is “Hearing God’s Whisper Amid the Noise.” The day will include a keynote session on practical Ignatian spirituality and the examen presented by Dr. Maureen Pryor, a session on meditation led by Anna-Marie Stouder, an optional guided nature walk, and much more. Participants will be able to end the retreat with the 5:30 PM Mass at St. Ignatius.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP here on Meetup and then submit your payment. Registration fee is $20 and includes lunch and snacks. You're invited to round up your payment to $25 or $30 as a donation to iWISSH if you are able. Women who are not members of iWISSH are also welcome to attend; the nonmember registration fee is $30.

Please deliver cash or check made out to "St. Ignatius Loyola Parish" to the parish, or send to Amy Rogers, 2740 Creekside Ln, Sacramento, CA 95821. Be sure to write ATTN: IWISSH/AMY ROGERS and include your name, phone number and/or email, and that this is for the iWISSH retreat. If you need to pay online, please add $2 for processing fees ($22)

Registration deadline is February 3.
