With great joy the Ignatian Spirituality Institute announces a lenten retreat opportunity for the Jesuit Women's Auxiliary, current parents, and parents of alumni of Jesuit College Prep in Dallas. Finding Christ in the World is an Ignatian retreat that moves through twelve themes for prayer. Space is limited and you can register now here.
The retreat unfolds as you pray daily with the materials, keeping your own notes. Some days include brief notes that are both instructional and invitations to prayer and consideration. Some days include prompts to help you apply your prayer to daily life. Then, each week you will meet online via zoom with a group of others who are praying and ready to share their experience with the retreat materials. The group's spiritual conversation explores the intersections of prayer and daily living, and is helped by Ignatian spiritual directors guiding the retreat.
The small group designed specifically for JWA and Jesuit parents will meet on Tuesdays @ 10 a.m. beginning January 26. We are delighted that Susie Andrews and Anne O'Brien, both with long experience in Ignatian spirituality, will serve as your companions during the retreat. (Note: if this day/time doesn't work for you but you want to make the retreat, please consider one of the other small groups offered by ISI which can be found here. Please note the ISI retreats begin the last week of January.)
There is no cost to register for retreat, however, we gladly accept retreat offerings to help defray the expense of offering the retreat and provide honorariums to our generous retreat directors. Each retreatant is responsible to purchase your own Finding Christ in the World retreat book through the Boston College Institute of Jesuit Sources. You can order your book online here.
If you want a more info about the retreat, you can find more here, and in these FAQs. You can meet the authors of the retreat here. And finally, you can contact Susie Andrews with your questions here.
We hope you will consider praying through Lent 2021 to find Christ in the world, here and now.
