|In the Quiet of the Heart, God Speaks with Maria Cressler, Executive Director of Ignatius House
Thursday, March 23, 7:30-9:00 p.m., Adult Ed/OCI Room
Each year during Lent we are called “into the desert” to go to a place deep within ourselves where we can hear the still small voice of God. And that voice IS there; we often are just too distracted to notice. Now is the time to come away for an evening to sit, rest, pray, and listen for God’s voice. When we “tune in” to the God within us, we experience an intimacy with God that leads to conversion, renewal, rebirth and true happiness. Sign up online on the Adult Education page.*

Almsgiving, prayer and fasting have long been hallmarks of Lent. This year, why not take the Elijah Cup home one week to pray for an increase of needed vocations to the priesthood, diaconate and religious life as a meaningful addition to your Lenten journey? It's a great family faith activity for people of all ages, including the very young!
