Please join us for the Year of Discernment Parish Retreat on Saturday, June 6, 2015 from 8:30AM – 2 PM at the Loyola Jesuit Center.

This past year our parish has hosted five events to create a space for prayer, education, and faith formation around the issues of human trafficking, immigration, economic justice, and ecological justice.

On June 6th we invite all parishioners to gather for the Year of Discernment retreat, taking time to connect, listen, and pray with one another.

We will reflect on the context and experience of the Year of Discernment, imagining the possibilities for action plans and outcomes if the parish focused on a particular social justice issue as a community. Our hope is to foster relationships and frame our reflection within the larger question of discernment – what is God’s preference for our parish?

Whether or not you have been able to attend the events, all parishioners are encouraged to prepare for and attend the retreat. Beginning next week, the bulletin board in the back of the church will highlight these events. Additionally, a packet of retreat materials will be available for parishioners to pick up starting the weekend of May 16th-17th and parishioners can RSVP online and view retreat materials at

Our pastoral council co-chair, Gary Scharff, and our pastoral assistant, Jess Ingman, will be offering "Parish Retreat 101: Ignatian Discernment & Community" -- a brief informational session after all of the masses on Sunday, May 17th. Take a moment to learn more about the retreat and some of the tools of Ignatian discernment we will be using together.

In order to aid the organizers in planning, please RSVP online by Wednesday, June 3rd and read all retreat materials beforehand. Contact Tina Auerbach ( or Jess Ingman ( with further questions.
