What is it?

  • “Everyday Discernment: Inviting God into Your Decisions” is a 6-week workshop that explores the Ignatian approach to inviting a deeply loving God into our decisions.

  • Everyday Discernment was developed at St. Peter under the leadership of Fr. Bowler. It is facilitated by members of the Ignatian Spirituality team.

  • We have offered it once a year for the past 2 years. This will be the 3rd

How can I participate?

  • When we present again, we will offer two options for meeting:

  • We may be offering it virtually this year, using the Zoom on-line meeting technology. We have been using Zoom very successfully for small group gatherings for the past weeks and found it to be a great way to communicate and connect while maintaining our physical distance.

  • All that you need to participate is a camera enabled computer, tablet or smartphone.

Who is this for?

  • This workshop will be most relevant to anyone currently in the process of making a life decision.

  • A regular daily prayer practice is key. Participants should be able to devote at least 30 minutes daily to prayer and workshop assignments. A recommended pre-requisite is completion of “The Ignatian Prayer of the Examen”.

  • Most importantly, the Ignatian approach requires a:

    • Conviction that God is active in your life

    • Sincere desire to choose the good

    • Willingness to do what’s necessary to become free enough to make the best choice.

 How will I get meeting materials? 

  • Since we are not meeting physically participants will need to either print out the Participant Guide or read it directly from their device.

  • Participants will need to get the Free Kindle app from "Google Play Books" on their computer, tablet or smartphone and download “What's Your Decision?: How to Make Choices with Confidence and Clarity: An Ignatian Approach to Decision Making by Father J. Michael Sparough SJ, Jim Manney and Father Tim Hipskind SJ. This is the reference book for the workshop.  (Amazon is currently quoting extended delivery times for books and the Free Kindle App is the fastest way to get the book).

  • If you have any concerns about using Zoom or navigating the Kindle app to purchase a book, someone on the team can help you.

Since each week builds on the previous week, please sign up only if you can attend all 6 weeks.
