Jesuits New Affiliation With The Benedictine Order of Cleveland,

Loyola Retreat House has announced a new affiliation with the Benedictine Order of Cleveland, which will allow the retreat house to maintain its Catholic identity and continue to offer retreats and spiritual programs, as it has for more than 40 years, under the auspices of the Catholic Church.

Until recently, the retreat house was affiliated with the Society of Jesus — better known as the Jesuits — who over the years provided priests and brothers who directed retreats and provided spiritual direction at the retreat house. In recent years, however, the number of available priests has declined and the Jesuits were unable to continue staffing the retreat house.
