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.

The First Spiritual Exercises: Inner Peace in the Service of God

In his radically innovative book The First Spiritual Exercises, Australian Jesuit retreat director Michael Hansen, SJ, presents four different retreats on inner peace. Each four-week retreat in daily life involves a commitment to 40-50 minutes a day of structured prayer from Monday to Thursday and a weekend exercise. Retreatants meet via Zoom weekly during the retreat to receive guidance from Matt Barmore (retreat giver) and to share their experience in small group spiritual conversation with facilitators.  Come and experience this journey into a more fruitful service!

5 Mondays, May 4 - June 1
6:45-8:15 p.m.
Online via Zoom

Standard Program Fee: $55. Young Adult (20s and 30s) Program Fee: $40 . Partial scholarships available.
