Two Musical Pre-Christmas Luncheons
Tuesday, December 1 and Tuesday, December 10* from 12:00 to 1:15 p.m.
Faculty and Staff are welcome to join a select group of LMU musicians under the direction of John Flaherty and Chris de Silva for a pre-Christmas meal. The luncheon will include an ambience of music and offer an experience of prayer, song, and Scripture that provides excellent community preparation for the upcoming holidays.
Each of these luncheons is a separate event; both will include music, prayer, and reflection.
To make a reservation, please call 8-1806, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will send an email reminder, and the location, on the day before the luncheon.
*Please note that our Pre-Christmas Luncheon originally scheduled for Tuesday, December 8 has been moved to Thursday, December 10, since December 8 is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.
Seasonal Organ Music in Sacred Heart Chapel
Friday, December 4 and Friday, December 11 from 3:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
During the last two weeks of class, the LMU Community has two Friday afternoon opportunities to leave stress outside, and enter Sacred Heart Chapel while seasonal organ music is being played.
Walk in, sit down or wander the aisles to view the stained glass windows, while Associate Provosts Brandon Grimmett or Rae Linda Brown provide beautiful organ music.
All are welcome – students, faculty, staff and friends - to quietly come and go during these special times for reflection.
Please click here to see the programs for December 4 and 11.
Faculty Staff Weekend Retreat: Ignatian Themes for Reflection and Prayer
Friday evening February 5 - Sunday February 7, 1pm at the Mary and Joseph Retreat Center in Palos Verdes
Fr. Randy Roche, SJ and Sr. Anne Hennessey, CSJ will guide the retreat, which will include silent time for personal prayer and reflection, and experiences of group sharing.
The Center for Ignatian Spirituality sponsors the retreat at no cost to participants. Spouses or partners are welcome to attend.
Due to the limited number of spaces available, priority will be given to those who have not yet had an opportunity to have the experience of the faculty staff weekend retreat.
To register, or for further information, please email email@example.com or call 310.338.1806.
