For the past 400 years, thousands of retreatants have been richly blessed by following what the Lord showed to St. Ignatius of Loyola in prayer. Oblates offer the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, and our house is especially suited for individual retreatants, to whom we give directed retreats.
The Oblates of the Virgin Mary began our retreat work in the Philippines in 1997. Since that time, we have given hundreds of retreats and recollections in Cebu and around the Philippines in preached and directed form. Oblates stationed in Cebu travel frequently to other islands in the Philippines to give retreats, and have also given retreats or seminars in India, Japan, South Korea, Mongolia, and Papua New Guinea. Direction can also be given in Visayan or Tagalog.
The recommended donation for a directed retreat is P950/day in Cebu and P1,050/day in Antipolo, which includes food, lodging, and spiritual direction. This can be adjusted based on the financial situation of the retreatant. Recommended donation for group day recollections are P50 per head, and your group must provide its own food.
