Interviews for the Spiritual Exercises in daily life are ongoing.  See below.

The Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius of Loyola

Ignatius learned from his own experience that God not only wants a personal relationship with each person, but also acts in this world to bring about such a personal relationship. The Spiritual Exercises are ways of helping us to become more aware of the reality of our existence as the recipients of God’s communication.

As persons of faith, we become more alert for God. The Exercises sharpen our ability to discern and feel the finger of God. All of this builds upon our desire to become more and more aware of God in relationship with us.
The Three Ways to do The Exercises:

The Poetry of Witness

Many courageous poets have taken on the role of witness, confronting injustice and inhumanity within themselves and their society. This series explores their work.  We’ll read a variety of modern and contemporary poems, from powerful narratives to simple, heartfelt lyrics, poems that dare to speak in the face of assaults on human rights and dignity, abuse of the earth. We will also begin a conversation about how you might witness to issues that concern you.  The last half-hour of each session will be devoted to writing, for those who wish.

A Lenten Day of Prayer

Mary Frohlich, RSCJ, a professor of spirituality at Catholic Theological Union, will lead a day of reflection on St. Therese of Lisieux.  St. Therese, a Doctor of the Church, teaches us the path to holiness through prayer.  There will be input, some discussion and lengthy time for contemplation.

Saturday, February 17, 9am to 3pm.  Please bring a bag lunch. Coffee and tea will be provided.  Suggested offering $40.
