Montreal Directed Retreats: Pray with Scripture Online

Our weekday prayer sessions continue this month and into the Fall, Monday through Friday, from 10:30 a.m.-11:15 a.m.

Welcome to all who desire to deepen your relationship with God. Come join us and learn how to pray with scripture in the way of Saint Ignatius of Loyola.

Montreal Directed Retreats (MDR), supported by the English Speaking Catholic Council (ESCC), offers weekday morning online sessions, free and accessible to all via the cloud platform Zoom.

Each session will include a short teaching on the Ignatian method of prayer, listening to a Scripture reading and entering into the experience. Following a quiet time, there will be opportunity for sharing (optional).

The sessions are 45 minutes in duration and run from Monday to Friday, 10:30 a.m. each morning. If you wish to join us, or if you have any questions, contact us at:
