Gift and Shadow

Director (s): 

Sr. Ann Marie Walsh, fcJ

Date:

There are many scripture quotes about light and darkness. Light and darkness are both parts of our everyday life. We probably take both for granted. Tonight in our Examen we will reflect on shadows and how we can come to a new awareness of ourselves and of our relationship with our loving God by looking at both the light and the shadow parts of our day.

On Mission

Director (s): 

Sr. Madeleine Gregg, fcJ

Date:

As people who are committed followers of Jesus, we are always on a mission, from the time we open our eyes in the morning, until we fall asleep at night! But are we AWARE of being on a mission? What does our mission look like? Tonight’s Examen will help us identify moments of being on a mission during the day and moments when we have let the opportunity to make God known and loved slip by, unnoticed.

“Only in God is my soul at rest” (Psalm 62: 1). Is this true of you? The beautiful music of John Michael Talbot will draw our hearts to examine our day to see where our fears have disrupted our desire for God alone to be our Rock of salvation.

Love Changes Everything

Director (s): 

Sr. Ann Marie Walsh, fcJ

Date:

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.

8-day Retreat Finding God in All Things

An Ignatia Directed Retreat

Director (s): 

Sr. Ann Marie Walsh, fcJ

Date:

Do you want to grow in your disposition to find God in all things? St. Ignatius based his Spiritual Exercises on his own life experience, recognizing the limits of his ability to respond to God. By meditating on the life of Christ and sharing their experience of prayer with a trained director, retreatants gradually grow towards inner freedom and the ability to respond more fully to God’s invitation to the fullness of life. Recent research on how Ignatian prayer actually changes the human brain may convince you to give this retreat a try!
