Faith Formation

Adult Spirituality and Faith Formation Program

Rooted in our Catholic faith and guided by our Ignatian tradition, the Adult Spirituality and Faith Formation Program seeks to provide opportunities for adults to grow deeper in their relationship with God through education, meaningful prayer and fellowship.
"Like St. Ignatius, we are pilgrims on a journey. We never fully arrive at our destination in this life, for daily God is inviting us into a deeper and deeper relationship. Let us be attentive to God's invitations, attentive to the ways the spirit is at work in our lives, and walk confidently together as a community on this journey of faith."
–Douglas Gleber

  • Midweek Examen: Finding God in All Things

    Wednesday Afternoons
    September 14 through May 24
    3:00 p.m. to 3:15 p.m.

    The Examen is a technique of prayerful reflection that can help us see God's hand at work in the ordinariness of our lives. Parents, graduate parents, faculty, staff, alumni and friends of Loyola are invited to take advantage of this forced pause in the middle of the week. Praying the Examen, we will look back on the week—rummaging through the "stuff" of our lives—to explore how and where God has been present. No conversation or sharing—just 15 minutes of quiet reflection in the company of others.

    Registration is not required. Join via Zoom.

    Please note, that we will not meet on November 16 and 23, December 21 and 28. and April 12.
  • Morning Coffee and Prayer

    Friday Mornings 
    September 9 through May 27
    8:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.
    Invite God into your day over a cup of coffee. Parents, graduate parents, alumni and friends of Loyola are welcome to join us on Friday mornings for meaningful prayer, reflection and faith sharing. The Gospel story for the upcoming Sunday will serve as a guide for our prayer. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet new people, renew your prayer life and grow in your relationship with God. Come as you are! Come when you can!

    Registration is not required. Join via Zoom.

    Please note, that we will not meet on October 7, November 25, December 23 and 30, February 10, March 17 and April 14.
