New "Escuela" Kicks Off at St. Ignatius Parish in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts
Jan. 17, 2018 -- This past Saturday, the Hispanic Ministry of the Office of Ignatian Spirituality facilitated the first session of the School of Ignatian Spirituality (the “Escuela”) at St. Ignatius Parish in Chestnut Hill, MA. Seventeen people attended this day-long formation session, which focused on Ignatian forms of prayer.
Many of those who participated had previously attended an Ignatian Day of Prayer or Ignatian Day of Reflection. The Escuela is designed to build on these experiences by offering participants a more thorough introduction to Ignatian spirituality. The Escuela consists of five day-long seminars (typically spread throughout the year), which focus on the core themes of Ignatian spirituality. As a whole, the Escuela offers a thorough introduction to Ignatian spirituality in Spanish for those looking for formation.
Below are a couple of pictures from this weekend’s program.
