About On The Third Day

Our Thrust

“The Glory of God is man fully alive.”

– St. Irenaeus of Lyons

We believe that the best way to thank the Lord for all He has given us is to live our lives to the fullest, becoming the best person He has created us to become!

Our Vision

To accompany others to know God better in order to be free to walk their calling.

Our Mission

  • To help formands develop greater God-awareness and self-awareness so they can deepen their intimacy with God.
  • To guide formands in their road to freedom from attachments that hinder them from responding freely to God’s call.

  • To assist the formands in the process of discernment to know, deepen, and fulfill their calling.

  • To provide a place for renewal.

The Three Pillars of the Ministry

Every step we take as a ministry is founded on these three pillars:

Scripture

The inspired writings in the Bible guides our lives as true followers of Christ. The gospel stories, wisdom from the prophets, and the lives of Biblical characters enlighten our minds and hearts, speak to our unique experiences, give us joy and consolation, and draw us closer to Him who is Word incarnate. The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola and all our retreats and recollections all involve the reading of the sacred Scriptures.

Creation

Everything that surrounds us is a reflection of God. Through His creation we are able to feel God’s presence and experience His boundless love. Creation includes nature and all life forms in it, the natural forces at work, and the beautiful landscapes and sceneries that all speak of God’s greatness. The Eco-Spirituality & Retreat Center where we hold our retreats is our sacred space where one can connect to God. The silence and solitude in a beautiful place all contribute to enriched prayer life and greater self and God awareness which ignite one’s creativity. Creativity, in all its forms, is a big part of being fully alive.

Psychology

Our psychospiritual approach allows for a more holistic view of the human person. Through the help of psychology, we can have a deeper understanding of human behavior and its physiological and sociological influences. As we talk about faith and movement of the spirit in each person, we also take into account some important considerations such as developmental stages, consciousness and unconsciousness, personality types, and coping and defense mechanisms.

Retreat in the Real World

Retreat in the Real World (RRW) is an 8-week journey adopted from the Ignatian Adventure by Kevin O’Brien, SJ and the more known Retreat in Daily Life (RDL), an annotation of the Spiritual Exercises (SpEx) of St. Ignatius of Loyola.
