    Ignatian Reflection and Prayer Group 

    • What is the spirituality that informs your sons’ Jesuit education?
    • Do you wonder what A.M.D.G. means?
    • Would you like to find a short prayer that can help you find God in your daily life?

    Whether your son is a freshman or a senior, you are welcome to join other Gonzaga moms who want to know more about the words, phrases and spirituality that are woven into a Jesuit education.

    We will ask you to read brief sections from books written by Jesuits, share your learning with a small group, and be introduced to simple ways of praying, even if you are not familiar with Ignatian forms of prayer. Each session will be facilitated by Martina O’Shea who, for the past seven years has been the Pastoral Associate for Ignatian Spirituality and Prayer at Holy Trinity Church in Georgetown.

    No need to sign-up, come once or every month!

    THESE DATES ARE DIFFERENT THAN ORIGINALLY PLANNED.
