Challenge/Desafío 2021-2022

Challenge (English) or Desafio (Spanish) is a 36-week daily reflection program by Fr. Mark Link, SJ, based upon the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola. Faculty and staff commit 10 minutes daily to do the assigned reflection exercise after which they write in their spiritual journal their thoughts and reflections about their experience of the prayer.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to meet regularly in small groups for spiritual conversation via Zoom. These groups may form based on language preference: English, Spanish, bilingual English-Spanish, Tagalog, etc.

Challenge/Desafio begins each year in September and ends in May. View programs dates here. For more information, contact Fr. Wayne Negrete, SJ, at or at 310-568-6170.
