Elms College to Host Retreats on Ignatian Spirituality in November
CHICOPEE — Elms College will host two retreats during November that will invite participants to explore Ignatian spirituality, in the tradition of St. Ignatius of Loyola.

Virginia Collins-English, a certified spiritual director, retreat director, writer, and psychotherapist, will guide participants in finding the nearness of God in daily life, the companionship of Jesus in scripture, and a heart-centered response to God’s desire in prayer.
