Lenten Series features Jesuit lectures

Loyola University New Orleans’ Jesuit Center and the Alumni Association will present the 2013 Lenten Series: “Church in the Desert, Church in the World: Reflections in the Spirit of the Second Vatican Council,” a series of lectures on Wednesdays in February and March to observe the season of Lent. Each of these free events will take place on Loyola’s main campus.

Wednesday, March 13, 7:00 p.m., Ignatius Chapel
Can Our Conscience be Wrong? A Reflection with Fr. Ed Vacek, S.J.
Fr. Vacek is the The Rev. Stephen J. Duffy Chair in Catholic Studies at Loyola University New Orleans.

Wednesday, March 20, 7:00 p.m., Ignatius Chapel
Not by Bread Alone: An Interfaith Conversation on Fasting
Join us for a dialogue on the spiritual practice of fasting in the Christian, Hebrew, and Muslim faiths.

The Wednesday events will take place at 7:00 p.m. in Ignatius Chapel, Bobet Hall.  

“Experiencing the Eucharistic celebration in the Latin rite, which may not be as familiar to most, is a way to further enrich our Lenten observation. This Eucharistic celebration with Gregorian Chant also allows the community to experience a spirituality that has been a part of the tradition of our faith over the centuries,” said the Rev. Ted Dziak, S.J., director of the Jesuit Center.

The Lenten Series is co-sponsored by the Loyola University New Orleans Jesuit Center and the Alumni Association.
