IGNATIAN SPIRITUALITY

Support for the Daily Examen

Oct. 19, 8:15 p.m. MDT | Online

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.

Dealing with Personal Loss

FCJ Centre

We have experienced many losses. Many of us have lost jobs, freedom, plans and human connections. This weekend will focus on how we can understand this grief and its impact on us. The spirit of the retreat is making space for God through art, nature, meditation, and journaling. 

This creative weekend retreat will focus on understanding the grief of the loss of a loved one. New ways of seeing life following a loss will be explored and healing practices will be introduced to foster a sense of peace. The spirit of the retreat is making space for God through art, nature, meditation and journaling.
