About this program

As the new year begins, you may want to revive your prayer life with some new forms of prayer. Come learn about and immerse yourself in experiences of up to three unique forms of prayer from the Ignatian tradition:

  • January 21 | Examen: Finding God in Your Life with Steve Wodzanowski
  • January 28 | Igniting the Imagination in Prayer with Carla Orlando

  • February 4 | Applying the Senses in Prayer with Sue Patrick

Each session includes a presentation, immersion into the prayer form, and reflection on the prayer experience.

The Ignatian Spirituality Center is offering this three-part series as part of St. Margaret's Episcopal Church Sunday Morning Adult Education. However, it is also open to folks from any faith background who would like to attend.



There is no cost to attend this series.
