about the program

Deepen your experience of Lent this year by entering into Novena of Grace, a retreat that can be made amid the busyness of daily life. Take just one hour a day to attend the retreat either at the Chapel of St. Ignatius for liturgy with Eucharist or St. Joseph Church for contemplative prayer, or make the retreat online. Be inspired by the preaching of three presenters steeped in the Ignatian tradition and vision, offer up your deepest desires in prayer, and join a faith-filled community. Attend one, any or all of the nine days to experience God’s abundant grace!
