Lenten Series 2019

Lenten Retreat in Daily Life: Everyday Encounters

Join Loyola University New Orleans for our annual Lenten Retreat in Daily Life: Everyday Encounters. This year, voices from across the Loyola University New Orleans community will share their personal encounters with God in the scriptures and help us reflect on the ways that God guides and nourishes each of us.

We are not always able to take a concentrated amount of time out of our schedule to make a retreat. This Retreat in Daily Life allows you to incorporate prayer into your busy schedule. The retreat helps you form prayerful habits and the discipline to be able to “find God in all things” in the context of your 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.
