Did You Know?
In addition to the retreats and programs offered by our Spiritual Growth staff, the Jesuit Center for Spiritual Growth welcomes Catholic and other ecumenical groups who are looking for a beautiful setting to conduct their own group meetings.
Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty,
my memory, my understanding
and my entire will,
All I have and call my own.
You have given all to me.
To you, Lord, I return it.
Everything is yours; do with it what you will.
Give me only your love and your grace,
That is enough for me.
—St. Ignatius of Loyola
Anticipation: The Challenges and Blessings of Waiting
Advent Day of Prayer with Sr. Pat Mensing, SSJ
Wednesday, Dec 4, 2019
9:30 AM – 3:00 PM
Advent is a time to reflect on what it means to wait—for God to appear in our lives in a new way, for our lives to unfold on many levels. In today’s world of constant motion, waiting for what is to come has become more difficult than ever! Spend the day looking at the many levels of “waiting” in our lives, and see how God wishes to accompany us in that space of “not yet.”
Arrival: 9:00-9:30 AM
The program will begin at 9:30 AM and will include input from Sr. Pat, opportunities for quiet prayer and reflection, Mass, and lunch. The program will conclude at 3:00 PM.
Cost: $50 ($25 non-refundable deposit)
After you register, you'll be instructed to make your deposit and/or pay your final cost.
