A Word from the Director

With the coming of summer, we move into a time of “Program Examen.” We look back at our past program year in gratitude and forward with an eye to the future, learning from our experience. We anticipate with hope the “something new” God is bringing forth with our cooperation!

Ignatian Currents Program. On May 17th and 18th , 37 participants gathered for the program, “The Christian at Work in the World: Our Calling” which was facilitated by Dr. Ed Hahnenberg of John Carroll University. See pg. 2 for details on the forthcoming October Ignatian Currents program.

Praying with St. Ignatius Retreats. Having completed our spring retreats, we will be reviewing and revising our retreat materials as we plan for the 2013-2014 program year. We look forward to offering the retreat at Jesuit Retreat House on Monday mornings beginning September 16th and also at St. Mary’s, Hudson on Thursday evenings beginning September 26th .

Nurturing the Call. Janet Lehane and Sr. Mary Ann Burke will join with me in offering our fall program for our Praying with St. Ignatius and Spirituality Program for Adults retreat leaders. Our fall program will offer opportunity to hone the skill involved in leading the “Gospel Contemplation” prayer form to large groups. (See pg. 2 for further details.)

Food for the Journey. A group of six interested participants joined with me in designating our focus for the coming year. We will reflect together on the “process of conversion” in the lives of Augustine of Hippo and Francis of Assisi. (See pg. 2 for fall program details.)

Ignatian Spirituality Collaborative. At its spring meeting, the Collaborative participants determined that we will move to triannual meetings. Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, September 25th, 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. at Jesuit Retreat House.
