At times, people feel a restlessness stirring within them, but aren’t sure what it means.  Others have a vague longing for something more out of life, but unsure where to go to explore it.  For others, a curiosity about faith and spirituality drives them to seek and learn more about it.  Please join us for this lunchtime discussion about the spiritual journey.  Readings and reflection questions will be provided.  Register by Tuesday, Sep 30 at 288-4545 or  A light lunch will be served.

Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius

The exercises are a pathway to recognizing God's activity in our deepest desires and growing in unity with God. Emerging from the experience of St. Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus, the Exercises provide a structured opportunity to mature in spiritual freedom and make choices that are responsive to God's call in one's life.
