MORRISTOWN, NJ - A group of Eva’s Village men attended the Spring Ignatian Spirituality Project Retreat at the Loyola House of Retreats in Morristown earlier this week.

Twelve men from Eva's village shelter in Paterson attended a two-day retreat Tuesday and Wednesday at the Loyola Jesuit Center, a 30-acre site in a quiet part of Morristown.

Time spent at the retreat has had a profound impact on the men of Eva's Village and six ISP volunteers from central and south New Jersey. Retreatants said it strengthened their faith and gave them hope while providing spiritual empowerment, according to the center.

It keeps us coming back everytime." shared Wally Pardo, the ISP Men's retreat coordinator from Basking Ridge.
