A MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR

Dear Friends of Eastern Point Retreat House,

On February 6th, we completed the 30-day retreat with 31 retreatants, including 24 Jesuit Novices. It was a graced experience for Randy and I to accompany our retreatants alongside the Jesuit Novice Directors.

Annotation 5 at the beginning of the Spiritual Exercises, St. Ignatius asks the one making the exercises “to enter with magnanimity.” At the completion, St. Ignatius asks for that same spirit of generosity to enter into God’s work. We have hope and confidence in all those who have made the Exercises that the work will be done with renewed generosity and love.

Blessings,
Joanne A. Fantini, CSJA
Director
