Retreats in Daily Life for Loyola Schools Faculty, Professionals, and Administrators

RETREATS IN DAILY LIFE
for Loyola Schools Faculty, Professionals & Administrators

Many Christians today have that yearning for God and interpret this yearning as an invitation to deeper prayer. This invitation can be realized through the “RETREAT IN DAILY LIFE” based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius.

From his own life experience, Ignatius created a way for women and men to deepen their relationship with God in the context of their daily lives.

The retreat offers opportunities for the on-going integration of the Gospel with daily life. It provides a wonderful, effective way of discovering God in all things.

A Retreat in Daily Life (RDL) is a way to give yourself some space in your busy life. It is an opportunity to experience:

  • deeper companionship with God
  • personal guidance in your spirituality
  • the transforming power of the Gospel.

SIGN UP BEGINS 18 TO 30 JUNE 2012.

We are offering two (2) forms of RDL.

A. TEN WEEKS OF RETREAT IN DAILY LIFE

After registering for the retreat, a person agrees…

  1. to attend the Opening and Closing Session of the retreat
  2. to pray using Scripture for 20-40 minutes a day
  3. to do brief journal writing about their experience of prayer
  4. to meet for half an hour once a week with your prayer guide (for individually directed) or meet for 45 minutes to 1 hour with the group for faith sharing and direction (for group RDL). The meetings with your prayer guide and/or group focuses on what is happening in your daily prayer.

The role of the prayer guide is to listen to you and help you decide how you might spend your prayer time the next days/weeks.

SPIRITUAL DIRECTION/ACCOMPANIMENT

A spiritual director is a person with whom you can talk about your experience of God, both in prayer and in the rest of your daily life.
With spiritual direction, it is hoped that you will become more conscious of how truly active God is in your life and how you might better cooperate with God’s gift of grace.

The Office of Campus Ministry can arrange spiritual direction for you with a Jesuit, religious sister or lay person trained for this ministry.
