    Lenten Retreat for Adults: On the Road to Calvary

    Chapel
    Essentially, Lent is an act of prayer. Spread out over 40 days, the church invites us to pray with Jesus on
    his journey to Calvary. Hopefully, our journey brings us closer to Christ and leaves us changed because of
    the encounter.

    We invite Loyola parents, alumni and friends to join us for our annual Lenten retreat as we enter into
    this holy season. Each week we will reflect on the lives of different characters from the Passion story
    through a series of meditations, prayers and contemplative practices. What do their actions tell us about
    ourselves? What do these characters teach us about our own failings? What do they teach us about our
    own moments of courage and grace? What can we learn of God’s mercy by walking the road to Calvary
    with Christ this Lent?

    Each session stands alone. Join us for one week, two weeks or all six weeks. Registration is not required.
