Explore Ignatian Spirituality

society-of-jesus-logoIgnatian spirituality reminds us that God pursues us in the routines of our home and work life, and in the hopes and fears of life's challenges. The founder of the Jesuits, Saint Ignatius of Loyola, created the Spiritual Exercises to deepen our relationship with Christ and to move our contemplation into service.

As a Jesuit Parish, We Offer Ignatian Spiritual Growth Opportunities

Spiritual Direction: This is an opportunity to meet with a a Jesuit or qualified lay person on a regular basis (perhaps monthly or quarterly) to discuss how God is working in your life.

Ignatian Retreat in Daily Life: This is a more intense experience of spiritual direction where one meets weekly with a spiritual director to make the “Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola.” The Spiritual Exercises are an extended prayer experience created by St. Ignatius as a way to grow in spiritual freedom and discern God's call in your life.

If you are interested in spiritual direction, please call the parish office: 651-227-7669 to set up an initial conversation with our pastor, Fr. Warren Sazama, S.J., to discuss these possibilities.
