    The Spiritual Work of Racial Justice retreat is a 6-week small-group zoom retreat that uses the framework of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. While Ignatius developed his Exercises to recreate a spiritual conversion, Patrick Saint-Jean’s Racial Justice Work is designed to begin a conversion of our conscious and unconscious racial thinking. Using the meditations, journal prompts and background content, we invite God to help us explore any motives and desires that might be robbing us of our freedom to love without prejudice. Using Patrick Saint-Jean, S.J., PsyD’s book, The Spiritual Work of Racial Justice: A month of meditations with Ignatius Loyola requires, 30-60 minutes of individual reading, journaling and daily prayer supported by weekly group zoom gatherings where an Ignatian team member, paired with a Social Justice member will lead an hour and fifteen minutes of prayer and sacred sharing. Participation is limited to the first 8 signups per session. To sign up: [email protected]

Daily Offering Prayer
O Jesus, I come before you at the beginning of this day. I gaze at your face, I look upon your side pierced by the lance. Your wounded heart speaks to me of God’s love poured out for us. Take, Lord, and receive my heart: the words of faith that I speak, the works of justice I would do, my joys and sufferings. When I come to the Eucharistic table, gather my offerings to your own for the life of the world. At the end of the day, place me with Mary, your mother, and for her sake take me to your Heart. Amen.

By: Fr. James Devereaux, S.J.

 

Spiritual Work of Racial Justice:  This six-week guided retreat uses the framework of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius to explore the way Christ calls us to the work of anti-racism. Using the meditations, journal prompts and content from The Spiritual Work of Racial Justice: A Month of Meditations with Ignatius of Loyola by Father Patrick Saint-Jean, SJ, we invite God to open our hearts to motives and desires that might be robbing us of our freedom to love without prejudice. Participation will require purchase of the book and 30 to 60 minutes of reading, reflection and prayer supported by weekly gatherings of guided prayer and sacred sharing. The retreat will be facilitated by members of the Ignatian Spirituality Ministry and the Social Justice Ministry, sponsors of this event.
