The Jesuits, the well-known community of Catholic priests, are famous for having developed a system of education that has brought them the admiration of many, but what is less well known is that their approach to education, and their approach to everything else, flows from a particular style of spirituality characterized by very specific techniques and premises first codified by St. Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits. This “Ignatian” spirituality was intended by St. Ignatius to be eminently practical and flexible, as useful to lay women and men in their careers and families as it is to any priest or religious sister. Over four weeks of discussions, Christopher Franz, a member of the Religious Studies faculty of St. Joseph Hill Academy High School, will explore the fundamental ideas and practices of Ignatian life, prayer and decision making with a view toward how these can be incorporated into everyday life.
Sessions will be held at the Convent of the Daughters of Divine Charity, St. Joseph Hill, 850 Hylan Blvd. (enter through the Columbia Ave. gate off Fingerboard Rd.). The sessions will be held on Thursdays, March 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th from 7:00 – 8:00 PM in the Meeting Room of the Convent.
Suggested donation is $10/ session and will helped toward the restoration of the old Convent.
Refreshments will be served.
