Lord Teach Me to Pray

Men's Study
12 sessions 
Mondays from 6:30  to 8:30 pm
starting Sept. 9
St. Joseph Room

This 12-session study introduces Ignatian prayer and spirituality in the way that St. Ignatius of Loyola himself introduced people; i.e., by structuring their initial prayer experience around the Christian virtues. Ignatian Prayer has been in existence for almost 500 years, and it is said by some that the Spiritual Exercises were given to St. Ignatius by the Blessed Mother herself. As such, the Exercises have an integrity that has been safeguarded throughout the centuries. The exercises have shaped the spirituality of countless children of God including saints; drawing them into and guiding them to a very deep spirit filled relationship with God. This beautiful way to prayer is meant to open our hearts to a deep and wonderful relationship with the Lord, Jesus Christ.

Each session includes prayer, faith sharing and an introduction to the methods of Ignatian prayer. Everyone will also receive Scriptures on the Christian virtues to use daily at home for 15 minutes of private prayer. Trained to facilitate Lord Teach Me to Pray, Stan Isham will guide the sessions. The cost is $10 for materials.  If cost is a concern, contact Jenni Vankat at This email address is being protected from spambots.
