March 14th 3:30 – 5:30: The Ignatian Way, with Fr. Charles Healey. Includes presentation, book signing and reception. Free will offering. The book will be for sale in the St. Ignatius book store. Although many books have been written on Ignatian spirituality, most focus on highly specific and scholarly details, rendering them too academic and specialized for the average reader. This book remedies this problem by compiling a more general guide to the basic aspects of Ignatian spirituality. Addressing everything from the life of St. Ignatius Loyola to his Spiritual Exercises to methods of dealing with contemporary world issues in a Jesuit spirit, it offers a comprehensive yet conversational approach to Ignatian spirituality. Whether readers are studying or teaching at a Jesuit school, seeking spiritual direction on a retreat, discerning a possible vocation to the Society of Jesus, or simply seeking more exposure to Ignatian spirituality, this book is an invaluable guide.
Tuesday, March, 9 from 9:30am-12pm. Free-will donation. Presenters Karen Doyle, SSJ and Dot Hortsmann.
