Here are some responses from those who have previously completed this program.

I’m looking forward to it! In fact, I can’t wait as I experienced the retreat you presented at Eastern Point with Fr. John Surrette at the end of August, 2019! It was life-changing!! Thank you so much .

Sincerely, Andrea
The retreat “Is That You God” was a truly well-crafted and inspiring one. Ginny’s knowledge, understanding and love of Ignatian Spirituality provided a profound personal and group experience. Topics are presented in a relatable way that touch heart mind and soul. A variety of prayer experiences and multiple handouts as well as opportunity for personal direction from Ginny and group meetings provided a rich week of retreat.
Ginny, good luck with the retreat. I hope people take the opportunity to benefit from your offering.
Happy Christmas and abundant blessings in the New Year.

Yvette, SSA

I found the talks illuminating, well thought out and beautifully delivered Virginia Blass is obviously in her element when explain aspects of Ignatian Spirituality. Her stories and examples offered further understanding and her handouts do a great job of complementing her presentations. I hope she will be invited back soon.

I found Virginia’s talks to be awe inspiring and life-sustaining!!! Ginny, with graciousness and magnanimous generosity of self. The talks were beautifully prepared and well-exampled. Ginny brought Ignatian teaching vividly and practically for our hearts and ears.

Talks have been a wonderful window into the depth of the Ignatian spirituality.
Virginia’s stories were nourishing and inspiring.

Excellent! Ginny is a gifted teacher with compassion.

Ginny is a 10+ presenter!

I welcome you to this retreat series on discernment. As a result, you will be better prepared to continue with a directed retreat (i.e. 5 or 8 days), if you desire. Looking forward to being with you.
