Lenten Retreat in Daily Life

"Transformed with Creation: Prayers from Laudato Si"

Daily reflections and prayers composed by members of the Loyola community will help us reflect on how we listen to and praise with creation, and how we attend to its needs. Reflections will draw from both the text of Laudato Si and our own experiences of praying with creation.

Readings and reflection questions will be emailed daily, and all are welcome to join the Loyola University New Orleans community in this Lenten retreat.  Subscribe here to receive daily reflections.

Please contact Laura Alexander, Assistant Director of University Ministry, at lqalexan@loyno.edu or 504-865-3732 with any questions or concerns.
