Leaning into Gratitude: Preparing for Thanksgiving

A 4-Week Prayer Experience

Thanksgiving Day is fast approaching. To help build and nurture an inner attitude of gratitude for this holiday, join fellow faculty and staff in “Leaning into Gratitude: Preparing for Thanksgiving” for an enriching four-week prayer experience.

LMU faculty and staff are invited to spend time each day praying from a weekly list of suggested Scripture passages. Participants will also join in weekly, one-hour, spiritual conversations via Zoom to share their experience and the grace of their prayer. Father Randy and Father Wayne will each facilitate a spiritual conversation group.

Listed are the dates and times of the sessions. To sign-up or to get more information, contact either Randy Roche, S.J., at rroche@lmu.edu or at Ext. 88695, or Wayne Negrete, S.J., at wayne.negrete@lmu.edu or at 310.568.6170.
