You're invited to join for weekly, online small group gatherings during this season of fasting, prayer, giving and contemplation. In advance of your weekly small group, you will be sent a short podcast and weekly readings. Conversation questions will also be provided for your group.

Lenten Migration Advocacy Challenge

Over the course of Lent, the Ignatian Solidarity Network invites you to join them in standing in solidarity with our migrant sisters and brothers. They will provide opportunities for you and your community to accompany migrants in prayer, fasting, and action.

No-Buy Lent 2023


Ignatian Solidarity Network is inviting you to a “No Buy Lent.” During this holy season in which we pray, fast, and practice almsgiving, give up buying non-essential items in order to make space for the sacred and to give the planet a rest. Sign up to share your commitment and find short daily inspiration on our Lenten calendar. An accompanying PDF will be provided for folks who prefer not to use the interactive calendar.

Be Longing: Virtual Lenten Retreat

As the Lenten season commences, for what… for Whom … do you long?

Please join the Office of Ignatian Spirituality of the Central and Southern Province on March 21 – 25, 2023 as we partner with the Ignatian Spirituality Program of Denver to explore the journey of “longing” for and with Jesus.
