Built to Last


Fr. Bill Watson, S.J. utilizes his 40 years of successful program development experience to unlock the riches of St. Ignatius’ spirituality so that faith communities of all kinds can encounter the Divine Physician in the Examen and Confession.

Fr. Watson’s programs stand the test of time: the Encounter program at Jesuit High School in Portland, Oregon will turn 40 in 2019 and has transformed the school. The 5-Day Ignatian Retreat at Georgetown University will have its 30th anniversary in 2017 and the Georgetown Freshman ESCAPE retreat celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2016. Two other programs started by Fr. Watson include the Weekend Ignatian Retreat, which enters its 20th year in 2017, and the Senior Retreat, which will enter its 30th year in 2018.
