Encountering Jesus a 4-Week Ignatian Prayer Series
Inspired by the Second Week of the Ignatian Spiritual Exercises, Encountering Jesus is a four-week (five meeting) series that invites you to meet the person of Jesus as you pray with gospel passages throughout the week. Each week you will share about your experiences in a small group and be led through a major meditation from the Spiritual Exercises. Register.
Since each week builds on the last, you will not be able to join after January 7. Contact Andy Otto (email@example.com).

Panelists include Rev. Dr. Steffen Lösel and Dr. Jonathan Strom of the Candler School of Theology at Emory University.

Lenten Young Adult Weekend Retreat at Ignatius House
Join other young adults on a Lenten retreat as we prepare to walk with Jesus through his Passion. Lent also invites us to live into our own passion. Ignatian spirituality is rooted in discerning the desires and passion of our hearts. On this weekend retreat, you’re invited to enter into solitude to accompany Jesus as you listen deeply to your own heart’s longings and where they’re leading you. Learn more and register.
