Ignatian Spiritual Exercises

There are a variety of opportunities to engage in The Spiritual Exercises, the underpinning of all Ignatian spirituality, that offer a series of guided exercises for reflecting on one's experiences, and practical instructions on various ways of praying. The Exercises are, essentially, "spirituality for busy persons" who are actively involved in the world.

For inquiries at any time about the Center for Ignatian Spirituality or for opportunities to engage in Ignatian Spiritual Exercises and Retreats, please contact Fr. Randy Roche, Director or Fr. Wayne Negrete, Assistant Director.

Ignatius Working from Home: Fundraiser, Manager and Counselor

An online program is being prepared, and will be announced as soon as we have the pieces together.

Fr. Randy Roche, SJ will relate some Ignatian insights and practices that have practical helpful applications for much of what we do and are trying to do at LMU, even as most of us work from our homes. 

Signups for the program will continue to be by replying to or calling 88695.






The Visit for Friday, March 27, 2020 has been canceled for reasons we are sadly aware.

As soon as it is possible, an audio/visual presentation, on site with Presidential Professor Eric Strauss, Executive Director of LMU’s Center for Urban Resilience and Lisa Fimiani, the Program Director of CURes, will be provided for LMU faculty and staff offering a virtual tour of Ballona Discovery Park.

The park is a two-acre native garden and wildlife habitat which includes Southern California native plants used by the Chumash, Tongva and Cahuilla tribes for their healing properties. The park is directly below the Bluff, and serves as an outdoor laboratory and a place for individual and communal reflection.

Further announcements will be made as information becomes available.
