Walking together in Europe – caring for justice and peace

Spiritual Retreat for Business Executives of UNIAPAC Europe in Hungary from 13th to 16th June 2024
Economy of Francesco Day of UNIAPAC Youth Group from 12th to 13th of June 2024


Join us for a three-day retreat to discover God’s call for Christian entrepreneurs in a world of crisis.

Inspired by the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola and the Social teaching of Pope Francis, this retreat will offer you an opportunity to:

  • Give yourself to God in personal and eucharistic prayer
  • Share your insights and experiences with other participants in small groups
  • Enjoy the fellowship and joy of being together
  • Learn how to balance technological innovation and social responsibility
  • Embrace the challenge of being the protagonists of justice and peace
  • Respond to the urgent needs of the world with courage and compassion
  • Commit to concrete actions that reflect God’s love and justice

As St. Ignatius said,
“There are very few men who realize what God would make of them if they abandoned themselves entirely to His hands and let themselves be formed by His Grace.”

Don’t miss this chance to find out what God has in store for you!

Presentation of our contents

  • Biblical stories; inputs from the Social teaching of Pope Francis; questions for individual reflection; practical hints for my personal spiritual life
  • Sharing: bring your own insights; more listening to others than group discussion
  • Liturgy
  • At the end of our retreat: a common reflection and evaluation.


Our way of proceceding

  • Our approach during these days is explicitly spiritual
    • Our mode is not a management team meeting: we do not need results.
    • Better less than more – and better deeper than broader.
    • We shall follow the method of the spiritual conversation which is fundamentally based on listening
  • Mobile phone: be conscious about its use.


Finding the Jesus approach

  • Getting in contact with Jesus – with brain and heart
    • How does Jesus feel, think, act? What makes him tick?
    • How does Jesus relate to other people?
    • What does Jesus do? – He prays, teaches, heals and sends …
  • From this we look to ourselves … "Imitatio Christi".
