Lenten Retreat
Living Your Life's Transitions – Living Toward the Yet Unknown
Saturday, March 10
9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Lake Shore Campus – Damen Student Center, Sr. Jean Multipurpose Room, 2nd Floor, 6511 N. Sheridan Road, Chicago, IL 60660

In partnership with Loyola Alumni Relations and the Institute of Pastoral Studies (IPS), join us for a Lenten Retreat during this season of reflection.

Transition is the process we go through as we struggle to adapt to interior and exterior change. All transitions begin with an ending and end in a new beginning. Therefore, in times of transition, we may find ourselves reliving the Paschal Mystery of death and rebirth. In this workshop we will discuss the beginning, middle, and ending phases of transitions and how living out that process affects our daily lives. These are times that offer us an opportunity to reflect on our expectations of self and our own personal journeys.

Workshop outcomes
This retreat is both didactic and experiential. Participants will learn and explore:

  • How to recognize our reluctance to change and view change in a positive light as an opportunity for learning and growth.

  • How to become more aware of the smaller daily transitions that are successfully made in our lives, in addition to the BIG transitions that we all recognize.

  • How to begin to understand change and transition as opportunities for transformation. This is an antidote to feelings of fear, anxiety, anger, and resentment that arise over transitions.

Cost: $25.00 per person which includes continental breakfast, boxed lunch, materials and a $5.00 gift to the IPS Student Scholarships.

Kindly RSVP by March 5. No walk-ins.
