Finding God In the Dark  is a film series that explores aspects of the Spiritual Exercises. Based on the book of the same name by John J. Pungente, SJ and Monty Williams, SJ each session includes a film and discussion. 

NOTE: We are in the process of adapting our Spring Series to use films that are more widely available on streaming services. We will provide this update in the coming weeks. If you are interested in participating, please use the RSVP link below and we will send you the new information once available. We will also update this page. Thank you!
