RETREATS IN DAILY LIFE
for Loyola Schools Faculty, Professionals & Administrators

Many Christians today have that yearning for God and interpret this
yearning as an invitation to deeper prayer. This invitation can be
realized through the "RETREAT IN DAILY LIFE" based on the Spiritual
Exercises of St. Ignatius. From his own life experience, Ignatius
created a way for women and men to deepen their relationship with God
in the context of their daily lives.

The retreat offers opportunities for the on-going integration of the
Gospel with daily life. It provides a wonderful, effective way of
discovering God in all things.

A Retreat in Daily Life (RDL) is a way to give yourself some space in
your busy life. It is an opportunity to experience:

- deeper companionship with God
- personal guidance in your spirituality
- the transforming power of the Gospel.

SIGN UP BEGINS 13 TO 25 JUNE 2011.

We are offering two (2) forms of RDL.

A. TEN WEEKS OF RETREAT IN DAILY LIFE

After registering for the retreat, a person agrees...
1. to attend the Opening and Closing Session of the retreat
2. to pray using Scripture for 20-40 minutes a day
3. to do brief journal writing about their experience of prayer
4. to meet for half an hour once a week with your prayer guide (for

for faith
sharing and direction (for group RDL). The meetings with your prayer
guide and/or group focuses on what is happening in your daily prayer.

SPIRITUAL DIRECTION/ACCOMPANIMENT

A spiritual director is a person with whom you can talk about your
experience of God,both in prayer and in the rest of your daily life.
With spiritual direction, it is hoped that you will become more
conscious of how truly active God is in your life and how you might
better cooperate with God's gift of grace.

The Office of Campus Ministry can arrange spiritual direction for you
with a Jesuit, religious sister or lay person trained for this ministry.
