Seniors Make Time For More Prayer This Lent
This past weekend the Church celebrated Laetare Sunday - the spark of joy in the middle of Lent. Last Friday, a group of nine seniors took time out of their very busy senior year to attend a two-day Ignatian Prayer Retreat for Lent and celebrated Laetare Sunday together. Accompanied by Mr. Szkarlat, Mrs. Fitzpatrick, Mr. Briand, nS.J., and Fr. Pecoraro, S.J., the students explored various forms of Ignatian prayer. Rooted in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, the students deepened their understanding and practice of various forms of prayer such as centering prayer, examen, journaling, and contemplation. It was a relaxing, reflective, prayerful, and enjoyable weekend retreat.
