Ignatian Spirituality Prayer Group: Saturday, Oct. 10, 2020 via Zoom

Then join on this Saturday, October 10, 2020 at 10am via Zoom for our monthly Ignatius Spirituality Prayer Group. 

So what is Ignatius Spirituality?

· God loves us as we are and desires friendship with us in a heart-to-heart relationship.

· God starts conversations with us in nature, in our day-to-day experience, in relationships with others, and in prayer.

· We know God loves us because His Son Jesus lived a human life and died for us.

· We are called to respond to God’s love by how we live the life He gave us, by the choices we make, and by setting aside some time to be with God in prayer.

Ignatius Spirituality allows us to spend some time with God. Join us by Zoom for our Prayer Group on the second Saturday of each month at 10 a.m. https://zoom.us/j/8355851452. For more information email manresacompanions2014@gmail.com.
