A Word from the Director

“Groping” when applied to humans, is a word used by Teilhard de Chardin, SJ to describe “discernment.” (See reflection on p. 2, Deepening our Awareness … Something to Ponder) As we “grope” our way with Christ in addressing the needs of God’s people, here is where you will find us:

The Praying with St. Ignatius Retreat. 62 members of St. Basil the Great Parish, Brecksville, completed this Lenten Retreat during the month of April. 10 members of the Leadership Team will meet in early June to prayerfully review their experience as plans are made for future retreats.

Food for the Journey. 18 participants gathered this past month to conclude reflection on spiritual conversion in the life of Francis of Assisi, in the life of Ignatius Loyola and in our own lives. One participant reflected: In this program, we were led “to God and our best selves gently and profoundly. The mix of people bring their wisdom and life experience and become companions for the journey. Thank you for the privilege and opportunity to be present to the Holy Spirit here.”

The Pilgrim Way of Ignatius Loyola. 60+ Members of St. Angela Parish, Fairview Park, gathered to pray together and to hear the witness of Sue Palmer who addressed the question, “Is It Possible to Find God in All Things?” The series continues this month when Valerie Stultz will address the question, “How Can I Love As God Loves?”
