About the Event
This 7 Week Lenten Ignatian Retreat in Daily Life is inspired by and based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius and uses prayer resources as designed by Fr. Joseph Tetlow, SJ as well as from other sources. For those who cannot get away for a retreat this lent, the retreat is an opportunity to have an at home retreat. While this retreat requires a serious commitment of prayer and reflection time, it provides an opportunity to deepen your relationship with God and to share your spiritual journey with others. Through this time of contemplation, prayer, and reflection, you will discover how you can more easily discover God in all things and return love for love! The weekly group meeting with your co-retreatants and spiritual directors enables you to relish the way God is working in your life and in the lives of others and invites you to further growth. Faith sharing is always such a rich experience!
Program runs online every Monday from February 28 to April 11.
