Is there a #LiveStrong for the soul? Find out when you join Christopher Collins, S.J., assistant to the president for mission and identity, for a guided lunchtime retreat series centered on the Spiritual Exercises, St. Ignatius Loyola's guide to spiritual health and fulfillment.
The retreat consists of four brownbag lunch sessions set for noon on Wednesdays through early October. The retreats are sponsored by the Office of Mission and Identity.
About the Journey's Guidebook
St. Ignatius, founder of the Jesuits, recognized that just as we need physical exercise for health of body, we also need spiritual exercise for our spiritual health. The Spiritual Exercises help a retreatant to deepen their experience of God in everyday life.
