“It is less a matter of searching for God than allowing oneself to be found by God in all situations.”  - Peter Hans Kolvenbach SJ

Do you want to:

  • Encounter God in a fresh, tangible way?
  • Experience Lent through a memorable journey of prayer?
  • Jumpstart, develop or deepen a way of praying that fits your rhythm of life?

God desires to give each of us inner peace, an experience of being loved that enables us to quiet our minds, to simply be, and to rest in God’s delight.

Adults and young adults are invited to an experience of learning to receive this inner peace in divine love. Join us for an introduction to St. Ignatius of Loyola’s First Spiritual Exercises that has helped countless people grow closer to God since 1540.  All you need is an openness to receive inner peace, a willingness to practice personal prayer (five times for 20-30’) during the week, a receptivity to share and support others weekly along the way.  The experience is guided by Fr. Tri M. Dinh SJ and the Christus Ministries Team.  

When: Participants meet each Wednesday from 7-9 pm (March 8, 15, 22, 29 & April 5) for a presentation, guided prayer, and small group sharing in the Parish Center at Visitation Church (Westchester, CA).
