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.

Ignatian Spirituality

12-Week Individual Retreat in Everyday Life
An Ignatian Individual Directed Retreat

Begins Sept 12, 7:00 p.m.

Hybrid - Online and In Person

For those who want to do an extended Ignatian Retreat but cannot participate in the Full 30 Day Retreat or the 19th Annotation which is a 9- month retreat, this 12 Week Retreat in Daily Life, based on the work of Joseph Tetlow, S.J. provides an opportunity to experience Ignatian Spirituality in an extended retreat. This retreat is also helpful to those who have completed the Spiritual Exercises and wish to enrich that experience.
