Lenten Series 2017 Presents “Ignatian Spirituality: The Virtues of the Spiritual Exercises”

Loyola press release - February 14, 2017

As the parades and parties come to an end on Fat Tuesday and the season of Lent begins Ash Wednesday, Loyola University New Orleans presents the 2017 Lenten Series: “Ignatian Spirituality: The Virtues of the Spiritual Exercises.”

The Lenten Series will host four talks that center on the Ignatian virtues based on the chapters of Jerry Fagin’s book Putting on the Heart of Christ. Each talk will be held on a Wednesday evening during Lent at 7 p.m. in the Ignatius Chapel, located in Bobet Hall at the center of Loyola’s main campus, 6363 St. Charles Ave. All are welcome. Free parking is available in the West Road garage.

“Lent is a season when not only the Loyola community but the entire Christian world uses these 40 days for spiritual renewal and repentance,” said University Chaplain Father Ted Dziak, S.J. “The focus this year is the virtues of the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola, which is the heart of Ignatian spirituality. These Ignatian virtues are offered by our speakers for contemplation and reflective prayer in this season of Lent.”
