White House Jesuit Retreat


Since 1922 the White House Retreat has offered comfort to retreatants making a three-day silent journey with the Lord through the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola, while and accepting the Lord’s invitation to “Come aside and rest a while” (Mark 6:30). On your journey you listen to instructive, informal talks by the Jesuit retreat director and have the opportunity for private conferences, daily Mass, and the sacraments of Reconciliation and Anointing of the Sick. Your private room and tasty, family style meals, shared in silence, enhance your experience. Optional fellowship in the evening offers the opportunity to share your thoughts, renew old friendships and make new friends in faith. The White House Retreat is located south of St. Louis on bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River on 75 beautiful acres. http://www.whretreat.org
