Tuesday Night Book Group: Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
Time: Tuesday, January 12 at 7:00 pm
Location: Zoom

About Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis

In the classic Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis, the most important writer of the 20th century, explores the common ground upon which all of those of Christian faith stand together. Bringing together Lewis’ legendary broadcast talks during World War Two from his three previous books The Case for Christianity, Christian Behavior, and Beyond Personality, Mere Christianity provides an unequaled opportunity for believers and nonbelievers alike to hear this powerful apologetic for the Christian faith.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul has been an active ministry at Saint Ignatius Loyola since 1865.

In the midst of the COVID-19 lockdown, we have continued our mission to serve those in need.

Our meetings begin with a prayer and spiritual reflection, followed by an agenda of items geared toward service toward the Poor. We also build and grow in friendship by sharing updates and happenings in our lives. Please consider joining us as we serve our neighbors in need.

SVdP meets biweekly (year-round) on Wednesdays at 7:00 PM via Zoom. Meeting attendees can choose to participate online via smartphone/computer or via telephone.

LME Day of Recollection: “The Overlooked Ecologies of Laudato Sí”
Time: Saturday, January 30 at 9:00 am

In Laudato Sí, Pope Francis discusses three ecologies: environmental, social, and spiritual. He reminds us that our contemporary crisis calls for a triple conversion. Environmental ecology asks conversion from consumption to conservation; social, from individualism to community; spiritual, from superficiality to depth.

Pope Francis believes restoring our world depends on spiritual and social as well as environmental conversion. Unfortunately, we often overlook the need for the first two. Using the insights of Ignatian spirituality and of Laudato Sí, our program will look at the actions and attitudes appropriate to the spiritual and social conversions that environmental conversion demands.

All are welcome, participants will be invited to share their experiences in small groups led by MCIP facilitators.

Meeting Christ in Prayer
Time: Wednesday, February 03
Location: Zoom

Wednesdays, from February 3rd to March 24th, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM

Meeting Christ in Prayer is an interactive 8-week guided prayer experience for small groups. Based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola, it introduces participants to various ways of praying and provides an opportunity to support one another through faith sharing on Zoom.

In the words of our retreatants:

“For me, Meeting Christ in Prayer has allowed me to be open to Christ’s presence in my life, and recognize His joy in my soul with constancy, even when my mind or heart may feel in conflict with this state.”

“Even after several years of studying the Bible I was able to uncover new layers to readings I had read several times. Meditating on these familiar readings also brought the scenes to life in a new and exciting way whenever I encountered them in a Mass or while praying “

“Meeting Christ in Prayer has created a stillness inside myself that allows me to hear His whisper, and feel His embrace, which supports me to manifest without hesitation that which He has woven into the tapestry of life around me. “


Who is this program for?
Adults who want to renew their Christian faith or enrich their prayer life.

Meeting Christ in Prayer is for you if you:
• have little or no experience in praying with others;
• are hungry for a deeper spiritual life;
• are actively seeking to learn more about your faith;
• are seeking spiritual renewal;
• are seeking to form regular prayer habits or seeking new ones;
• desire the support of your Christian community; or
• want to be aware of God’s presence in your daily life.

What does it offer?
Meeting Christ in Prayer offers you the opportunity to take part in a retreat within your daily life, during which you will be asked to commit to 20 to 30 minutes of daily prayer and reflection exercises.

You will be supported throughout the retreat with eight weekly small-group meetings that will include group prayer, guided meditation, faith sharing and reflection; and an overview of prayer exercises that will be practiced during the week.

As part of a small trust-filled community and through prayer, shared experiences, and explorations of faith, you will deepen your connection with our Creator as you discern the many graces that you receive from God in your daily life.

Meeting Christ in Prayer can inspire a profound sense of mission that invites you to a new level of discipleship.

Cost: A sliding scale of $30-$50, which covers all materials. A good faith offering is appreciated.
