The Center for Ignatian Spirituality invites you to consider making Meeting Christ in Prayer, a favorite program among faculty and staff. Meeting Christ in Prayer is our adaptation of an 8-week daily meditation and contemplation program by Fr. John Sassani and Mary Ann McLaughlin, based upon the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola.

LMU Faculty and staff commit to 25-30 minutes daily to do the assigned scripture meditation and then write in their spiritual journals their reflections about the experience of the prayer. Each week participants meet in small groups for spiritual conversation via Zoom.

The participant guide is in English; however, translations of the assigned scripture passages are provided in Spanish and Tagalog. Spiritual conversation groups may be formed by language preference: English, Spanish, bi-lingual English and Spanish, French, Tagalog, etc.

Meeting Christ in Prayer is offered in the fall and spring semester. View program dates here. To get more information, contact Fr. Wayne Negrete, SJ, at or (310) 568-6170.
