Ignatian Discernment Workshops

Event Date:  May 1, 2019 - 6:30pm image/jpeg icon56433420_10155871960285780_7199441085993582592_o.jpg

**STARTS MAY 1st WEEKLY UNTIL JUNE 5th**

Wake up. Shower. Breakfast. Go to work or school. Come home. Dinner. Prepare for the next day. Sleep. Repeat.

Does that sound similar to your routine? Chances are, it does.

Let's face it, being a young adult in today's society is challenging. Our lives are busy, filled with the many demands of life from all directions. Sometimes it's hard to even figure out where to go from here. Slowing down and tuning in to silence and reflection sounds like a nice idea, but the opportunity just never seems to present itself.

Not until now.

A modern and very human take on the story of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, often called ‘The Saint of Second Chances.’ As a brash, hot-headed soldier in a time of political upheaval in Spain, the young Iñigo went from living a life of brutal violence and debauchery, to becoming one of the greatest saints in the history of the Church.
