Lenten Series 2019

Lenten Retreat in Daily Life: Everyday Encounters

Join Loyola University New Orleans for our annual Lenten Retreat in Daily Life. The theme for this year’s retreat is “Everyday Encounters."

Voices from across the Loyola University New Orleans community will share the ways that they personally encounter God and help us reflect on the ways that God guides and nourishes each of us in our own ways. This online retreat helps participants form prayerful habits and the discipline to be able to “find God in all things” in the context of their daily routine, relationships, and activities. 

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

Please contact Laura Alexander, University Minister, at lqalexan@loyno.edu or 504-865-3732 for more information.
