Make the Ignatian Spiritual Exercises
The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola are a collection of meditations, prayers, and contemplative practices intended to help people deepen their intimacy with God. Ignatius House Jesuit Retreat Center will offer the Spiritual Exercises as a nine-month retreat in daily life, beginning in September 2023. The retreat involves daily prayer, weekly meetings with a spiritual director, and four optional group sessions. The cost for the retreat is $1,000, and space is limited. The retreat is well-suited to those who have made shorter individually directed Ignatian retreats, have a habit of daily contemplative prayer, and have recent experience of ongoing spiritual direction. To apply or request more information, contact Fr. Bill Noe, SJ at wnoe@ignatiushouse.org.

Little Ways Playgroup
Inspired by the meditations of Saint Thérèse de Lisieux, Little Ways seeks to bring together mothers and their children in a community of faith formation and encouragement. In spite of the many competing demands on our time, Saint Thérèse reminds us that often the ways in which we can best serve the Lord are those which seem the smallest. This group seeks to bring together mothers who are serving the Lord in what is perhaps our lives most important ministry, that of raising our children. We meet on the first Friday of each month from 9 am in the church nursery. RSVP to Megan at megan.schellman@yahoo.com.
