Edinburgh: year-long spirituality course
Comment Email Print
¬†A nine-session course in Ignatian Spirituality begins on Monday, 10 January 2005, at the Jesuit Sacred Heart Church in Edinburgh. The sessions will be held monthly and will be led by local Jesuits and laypeople associated with the spirituality of St Ignatius of Loyola ≠ the founder of the Jesuits. Topics over the 11-month course include the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius, led by Ruth Holgate, the director of the Ignatian Spirituality Centre in Glasgow (15 February), and Imaginative Contemplation (18 April) with Fr Bill Crooks SJ. On 9 May, Elizabeth South of the Epiphany Group will be guiding participants through the Examen (a short daily period of reflection for examining one's conscience), while Union with God in all things will be the topic on 14 November; this will be led by the UK Director of Ignatian Spirituality, Fr Gero McLoughlin SJ . The organiser of the spirituality course is Fr Jim Henderson SJ from the Jesuits' Edinburgh community, who will be leading two sessions on the Life of St Ignatius (10 January) and Making Choices (12 September). "There is a very clear yearning in people these days to find more meaning and direction in their lives," says Jim. "St Ignatius himself felt this almost 500 years ago, and it led to his Spiritual Exercises and to the setting up of the Society of Jesus. As Jesuits today, we and our co-workers are privileged to be able to pass on and share these gifts with the people of Scotland." The Ignatian Spirituality Course will take place at Sacred Heart Church, 28 Lauriston Street, Edinburgh, starting at 7.30pm on Monday, 10 January 2005. There is no charge, but an offering would be appreciated. Full details of the sessions and more information are available from Fr Jim Henderson SJ on 0131 477 5778.
