“Tradition is not the worship of ashes, but the preservation of fire.” - Gustave Mahler
The Purpose of Companions of Grace:
- Create a community and network of persons serving the Ignatian retreat and spiritual companioning ministries
- Provide ongoing development and formation in these ministries
- Provide opportunities for mentoring and peer-to-peer support and encouragement
- Offer retreat and reflection opportunities for persons serving the ministry
Who we are: A community of persons who are
- formed and living in the Ignatian tradition.
- companioning others through retreats, spiritual direction, and guiding the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius.
- seeking to see all things new in Christ so that we may do the next good thing before us.
- include consideration and conversation on topics in Ignatian Spirituality with space for questions and exploring. Our hope is to deepen our understanding and formation in the Ignatian tradition.
- offer space to check-in regarding the wholeheartedness required in our ministries. We explore our invitations to discern, the gifts and challenges of relationship, and how we take care of our whole selves.
- are encircled with communal prayer - listening and opening our hearts to the Lord and one another.
