Ignatius the Pilgrim

A Lent retreat

A 16th Century soldier turned saint whose life is relevant and inspirational today.

Come with us on a journey through Lent with Ignatius of Loyola and see how his struggles and achievements form part of the common human search to understand self and live a fulfilling life.
It is 500 years since a cannonball shattered his dreams of fame and fortune and forced him to re-evaluate life. From the comfortable life of Spanish nobility he opted for a simple lifestyle of service to those most in need and devotion to Christ.

Each day of Lent we offer:

  • An episode in the life of Ignatius
  • A reading from Scripture
  • A picture to ponder
  • Music to inspire
  • A short reflection

Join us daily online and join a group weekly to share your exploration and prayer and if need be get help with the different ways of praying the materials.

There will be a live weekly prayer and review of the retreat every Friday at 2pm. 
This is particularly for those who are not a member of a weekly Lent prayer group.
