The Seattle University educational experience prepares students to be leaders who serve the common good through the lens of Jesuit values and social justice. We support alumni in their efforts continue to explore their commitment to the Seattle U mission and a desire for Ignatian spirituality.
ISC and SUAA Partnership for Spiritual Programming
The Seattle University Alumni Association is officially partnering with the Ignatian Spirituality Center (ISC) to offer Ignatian and Jesuit Catholic program offerings directly to alumni. The ISC offers a wide variety of programs and retreats which aim to meet people of all faith traditions wherever they are in their spiritual journey and to help them deepen and explore their relationship with God.
By the River: A Summer Ignatian Retreat in Everyday Life
Seattle U alumni are invited to the annual Summer Ignatian Retreat in Everyday Life hosted by our partner, the Ignatian Spirituality Center (ISC).
While sitting facing the river Cardoner, St. Ignatius was transformed, coming to an understanding of things in such a way that “everything seemed new to him.” During this challenging time, press pause and turn your face to the “river running deep" through life as you connect with people of faith to pray that God may open our understanding and help us to see things anew.

In this retreat, the ISC offers you four evenings of presentations based on a modified version of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. You will receive prayer handouts to help you reflect and integrate the content into your life either on your own or within the context of the optional morning prayer on Tuesday-Thursday mornings. The retreat will end with the familiar liturgy where the group can share graces.
