As the season of Lent has begun, Loyola University New Orleans presents the 2017 Lenten Series: “Ignatian Spirituality: The Virtues of the Spiritual Exercises.”
The Lenten series will host four talks that center on the Ignatian virtues based on the chapters of Jesuit Father Jerry Fagin’s book, “Putting on the Heart of Christ.”
Each talk will be held on a Wednesday evening during Lent at 7 p.m. in the Ignatius Chapel, located in Bobet Hall at the center of Loyola’s main campus, 6363 St. Charles Ave.
All are welcome. Free parking is available in the West Road garage.
“Lent is a season when not only the Loyola community but the entire Christian world uses these 40 days for spiritual renewal and repentance,” said Jesuit Father Ted Dziak, university chaplain. “The focus this year is the virtues of the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola, which is the heart of Ignatian spirituality.”
