A Word from the Director

How do we decide for Christ in the face of … falsehood and dishonesty, immigrants facing deportation, so many starving people, refugees fleeing violence, radical environmental changes, polarization and increase in hate crimes? See Peter Fagan’s suggested orientation on pg. 2 of this newsletter. Here is where you will find our contribution as we share the “discipleships of our lives:”

Praying with St. Ignatius Retreats. This 8-week retreat at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parish, Wickliffe concluded on April 1st . The retreat team included: Paul Barbins, Patrick Cleary-Burns, Kathy Haag, Claudette Matero and Carl Toomey. In addition, Mary Coffey and Dave Jesenovec partnered with more experienced team members to offer small group facilitation. One retreatant commented, “I put a lot into this retreat and I got a lot out of it. I will read and use the material from the retreat every day of my remaining life.”

Food for the Journey. 10 participants will conclude their participation in this 4-part series on April 22nd with a conversation on “a genuine portrait of St. Ingatius” as presented by Harvey D. Egan, SJ author of Ignatius Loyola the Mystic. This book reflection series has been facilitated by Martha Campbell.
