IGNATIAN SPIRITUALITY

Support for the Daily Examen

Runs every Tuesday starting September 6,
7:15 p.m. MDT | Online
*New Time*

It is so easy to say “Love Changes Everything” but do we really reflect on the deep truth of that and how it can draw us closer to our Loving God? God is Love and God loves us! This loving God desires our love in return. In the Examen this evening, we will take time to reflect on God’s great love for each of us, individually, and how this love manifested itself in our lives today. We will also reflect on how we responded in love.

Spiritual Growth

Living in Harmony with Creation

Exploring Laudato Si (2-part Series)

Sept. 28 & Oct. 5, 7:00 p.m.

FCJ Retreat & Conference Centre

“We have forgotten that we ourselves are the dust of the earth; our very bodies are made up of her elements, we breathe her air and we receive life and refreshment from her waters…In the heart of this world, the Lord of life, who loves us so much is always present.”   (Laudato Si’ – Pope Francis)

Through prayer, reflection, and practical suggestions we will explore some of the writings of Pope Francis and Teilhard De Chardin, learning how to live in harmony with creation and how to integrate the universe's story and the environment of our “common home”, this planet earth, into our prayer, our ministry, and our spirituality.
