Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola – Men’s and Women’s Silent Retreat – April 19 – 21

Join Fr. Armando Marsal, Parochial Vicar at Our Lady of Angels Catholic Church, for a unique retreat experience. This retreat will be entirely in English. An equivalent Spanish retreat will be held in July.

The Spiritual exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola is a patrimony of our Holy Catholic Church and thus it's a tool meant to be used by every Catholic who wishes to deepen their relationship with our Creator. The Language of GOD, which is silent prayer, helps us to stay focused on the principle and fundamental reason we were created; To Worship and serve the Lord thus one may save his soul. Afraid of praying in silence? Don't be! The nature of this retreat will have you praying to the Lord in silence because you need HIS LOVE and He wants you to love him because He wants what is best for our soul and that is to synchronize our will to the one who designed you and gave you a purpose to exist.

Retreat cost is $305 per person.

Rev. Armando Marsal, D.C.J.M.. Parochial Vicar Our Lady of Angels (Woodbridge) was born in Madrid, Spain, the third of 10 siblings. He studied in a Jesuit school until he went to the University, to study Mining Engineering. When he was 12 years old, he lost his faith. In his words “I had a total lack of prayer and relationship with God.” When he was 25 years old, he had a very strong conversion. Since that experience he wanted to find God and to do His will. He joined the religious group of the Disciples of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary DCJM and was ordained a priest at the age of 36. He has been a priest in the United States for 11 years; 4 years in North Virginia and 7 in Colorado. All these years working with Marriage and Family Life. He taught several classes in Spain, in the seminary and theological faculties for lay people: Anthropology, Mariology, Moral Theology. He has also given several retreats in the US and around the world to the Missionaries of Charity of Mother Teresa, as well as several silent retreats to English and Spanish lay people and religious communities in Denver.
