Introduction to Ignatian Spirituality: Going Deeper in Your Life of Prayer

SUNDAY, JANUARY 21, 10:10-10:50 A.M., Bloedel Hall

Come take part in a discussion on the gifts of Ignatian Spirituality. This Christian spiritual tradition is inspired by St. Ignatius Loyola and is a spirituality for everyday life, beckoning us to see that God is ever-present in our world and active in our lives all around us. Learn about the basic tenets of this approach that can support deepening prayer and attuning discernment as we listen to how the Spirit may be moving in our midst. Facilitators include Erin Beary Anderson, Ross Hays, and Dean Steve Thomason. On February 7, a follow-up Cathedral Commons will go deeper into the The Daily Examen, a technique for meaningful reflection of your day (see below).

UPDATE: A complete video of the Sunday forum now available below.


The Examen: Finding God Across Your Day

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 6:45–8:15 P.M., in person in Bloedel Hall or online via Zoom. Optional community dinner at 6 p.m. ($6/child; $8/adult; $25/max. family)

Usually prayed in the evening, the Daily Examen is a way to help notice and attend to God’s presence throughout the day through prayer. Come learn about the history of this practice with an overview from Dean Steve Thomason, hear experiences from Molly Bosch and Bryan Pansing who learned the Examen in the Jesuit Service Corps, and practice with a guided exercise from Ross Hays and Erin Anderson. Together we will consider what’s bringing us closer to God and what may be creating distance for us?

    Wonderful that the “Reimagining the Ignatian Examen” is a free app to download. It has 3 dozen choices for personalizing the examan, like “Ask for grace,” “A relationship,” “Am I free or unfree, ” or “My daily habits.” Gentle musical background. Thanks so much for providing this resource link!
