During the season of Lent, the Center for Ignatian Spirituality will once again offer the “Retreat in Everyday Life,” an eight-week prayer experience that is an opportunity to pause, reflect, listen and respond to the voice of God as God speaks to your heart. Based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola, this Retreat is Christian in focus and is open to people of all religious traditions. All Boston College faculty, staff and administrators are welcome to participate.
During the Retreat, each participant commits to spend some time each day in prayer (perhaps before work, during lunch or at night) and to a weekly meeting on campus with a spiritual guide (at a mutually convenient time)
