Spirituality & Service

Wednesday, February 16, 2022
Noon-1:00pm Eastern Standard Time

God calls us in different ways at different times in our lives. Our relationship with God changes as we mature and our spirituality draws on our wisdom and experience. How do we discern God’s call as we age? How do we grow from being children of God into becoming women and men for others?  Join us for a conversation exploring the spirituality of aging and how we can deepen our experience through prayer and service in the Ignatian tradition.
