Through prayer, presentations, meaningful reflection and conversation in community, we will consider St. Ignatius' guidelines for discernment and discuss how they apply in the midst of our current cultural, social and personal contexts. Together, we will learn to integrate these principles into our everyday lives.  Come learn how to cultivate a life that facilitates discernment!
