The Spiritual Exercises

Spend the academic year growing closer to Jesus, building your faith, and discovering who God is calling you to be.

The Spiritual Exercises in Everyday Life (SEEL) program is a version of St. Ignatius' well-known retreat. If you want to understand Jesus' heart, dive headfirst into the ocean of Ignatian spirituality, and discover who God is calling you to be, then this retreat is for you. The program utilizes a modern translation of Ignatius’ text that helps connect the experience to your life as a college student.
