Center for Ignatian Spirituality Presents Pre-Christmas Program
The Pre-Christmas Musical Luncheons, hosted by the Center for Ignatian Spirituality, have become a cherished tradition for many LMU faculty and staff members in the past eight years.
This year, the center will host a Zoom presentation of music, a prayer service, and a short “breakout” session of small groups for sharing favorite personal or family Christmas season traditions. The half-hour program will begin at 4 p.m. on Dec. 9. To participate, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a voice message at 310.338.1806.
A video pre-Christmas program will also become available on Dec. 9, featuring Christmas music, a brief interfaith prayer service, and time for personal reflections on gratitude, accompanied by more music.
Also, we offer to send to those who wish a PDF booklet with daily reflections for the entire pre-Christmas season, or an email with each day’s reflection. Let us know your preference in an email to email@example.com or a voice message at 310.338.1806.
Spiritual Exercises for Busy Persons
For faculty and staff who are busy with their work at LMU and their personal lives, the Center for Ignatian Spirituality offers The Spiritual Exercises for Busy Persons.
In the tradition of St. Ignatius Loyola, through meditations, prayers, and contemplative practices, faculty and staff reflect upon everyday work and life experiences, and grow in appreciation for, and conscious exercise of, their personal gifts of body, mind, and spirit.
Following the model of those who make use of "personal trainers" for physical exercise, LMU faculty and staff will have the option to meet weekly with a member of the Center for Ignatian Spirituality staff to guide them in their reflection / prayer for the many months it takes to complete the experience. Meeting times are adapted to each one's schedule.
