Ignatian spiritual formation program
Spiritual Exercises in Daily Life
Join us for a special mini-series this summer as we meet to discuss the Ignatian themes in the films Soul and The Shape of Water. Participants watch the films independently and meet for a discussion via Zoom at 7:00 p.m. Pacific. Supplemental materials are provided to registrants. You do not need to attend both sessions. All are welcome.
Soul - Wednesday, July 7, 2021
The Shape of Water - Wednesday, July 21, 2021
Saturday, July 31, 2021 ~ 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Celebrate the Feast Day of St. Ignatius of Loyola with our mini-retreat. Our morning will include time for prayer, personal reflection, witness talks and group faith-sharing identifying our personal stories of conversion, keeping with the theme of conversion for The Ignatian Year. We will consider the life of St. Ignatius and the "cannonball moments" of our own lives.
St. Ignatius of Loyola felt that praying the Examen daily was essential to maintaining a deep relationship with God. Whether you are just discovering this "simple, life-changing prayer" or if it is a part of your daily practice, we invite you to encounter the Examen with LIS this summer. Offered in two formats: a guided Examen and and Examen Payer Group. See below for details and to register.
Finding god in all things
St. Ignatius of Loyola teaches us to find God in all things.
While we have so much to share with you this, our celebration wouldn't be complete without hearing from you. So, we want to know: Where have you found God this week? Send us a photo with or without a caption and we'll include it in our weekly Sunday message. Thank you!
Guided Examen - 30 minutes
Mondays, July 12 & 26 at 7:00 p.m. Pacific
A member of the LIS team will guide you in a version of the Examen, taking you through each of the five steps and ending with sharing one word about the experience.
Examen Prayer Group
Meets weekly for 4 weeks, approx. 1 hr
Part prayer group, part support group, they are intended to introduce the practice of incorporating this "simple life-changing prayer" into your daily routine and deepen your practice through faith-sharing. Groups will be limited to 10 participants and will be moderated by a member of the LIS Leadership Team.
In addition to the programs listed we will be reaching out with information and inspiration on social media and weekly messages to inspire contemplation, and invitations to participate. You won't want to miss out on all we have in store, so please join our mailing list and connect with us today!
