Making the Parts Whole

A new website that provides spiritual resources from the perspective of Ignatian spirituality to aid in prayer, reflection, journaling, - even action.

Weekend Workshops on Journaling & Reflection



Overnight, weekend, and five-day retreats sponsored by the Chaplains' Office. These include:

  • Escape - an overnight retreat for 100 first-year students.
  • Manresa - a student-led weekend retreat held three times a year, which provides opportunities for reflection on self-identity, relationships and spirituality.
  • The Spiritual Exercises - a five-day version of the month-long Spiritual Exercises as developed by St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuits. This silent retreat, offered several times a year, is a long-standing Holy Cross tradition.
