Xavier High School (NYC) - Sweeney

Module by: Jesuit Virtual Learning Academy. E-mail the author

Thread: Religious

Subgroup: Individual/Group

Foci: Faculty in Their Second year at Xavier

Program Title: Second Year Ignatian Spirituality Retreat

Contact Person/Office: Joe Sweeney, Dean of Faculty

School : Xavier High School

Program Description: A two-day retreat for teachers and counselors in their second year at Xavier that focuses on praying with the First Principal and Foundation and the Examen.

Rationale: To give relatively new faculty an experience of Ignatian prayer and to develop a spiritual community among this cadre of faculty.

Leadership: The retreat was envisioned and designed in 20111-2012 by Rev. Jack Replogle, SJ, Ralph Rivera, SJ, Joe Sweeney, and Lindsay Willert. It was developed after hearing of the need for a more experiential approach to Ignatian spirituality from a number of young teachers. It was developed over the course of five meetings throughout the year.

Implementation: The retreat is led by Rev. Jack Replogle, SJ, Ralph Rivera, SJ, and Joe Sweeney.

Finances: The school pays for all retreat costs.

Rewards: There are no monetary or tangible “rewards’ for leading or participating in the retreat.

Location (Space): The retreat took place at a local retreat house (which is unfortunately closing). We are currently looking for a new retreat house for next year’s retreat.

Accountability/Assessment: Both formal and informal feedback is collected from the retreatants after the retreat. Feedback is sought on the retreat and what the retreatants needs are for future spiritual development.
