Sacred Space

"Sacred Space is inspired by the spirituality of Saint Ignatius of Loyola whose insights into God's working with the human heart have been of great assistance to countless people over the centuries and are found more helpful than ever today.


We invite you to make a 'Sacred Space' in your day, praying here and now, as you visit our website, with the help of scripture chosen every day and on-screen guidance."


3 Minute Retreat

"3-Minute Retreats invite you to take a short prayer break... Spend some quiet time reflecting on a Scripture passage.


Knowing that not everyone prays at the same pace, you have control over the pace of the retreat. After each screen, a Continue button will appear. Click it when you are ready to move on. If you are new to online prayer, the basic timing of the screens will guide you through the experience."
