LORETO SPIRITUALITY OUTREACH - Update
The first Regional Gathering took place in Coleraine on Sunday 24th March 2012 with 50 participants: 20 Province Members from Coleraine, Letterkenny, Linsfort, Belfast and Omagh with their 30 invited guests.
Five of the "Keepers of the Vision" group looked forward to facilitating the Gathering: We know that this was an important 'next step' in following our province desire to invite others to share with us our spirituality of experiencing God in ordinary, everyday life.
In 1611, Mary Ward was inspired by God to take the Spirituality of St Ignatius of Loyola which can be summed up as a growing capacity "to find God in all things".
Mary Ward expresses this when she encouraged us "to refer all to God".
For Ignatius and for Mary Ward, daily life, the ordinary way of doing things, was viewed as the place where God works.
When we reflect on daily experience we ask ourselves "Where is God in the happenings and relationships of today?"
We strive to be women of freedom, justice and sincerity.
In all our decisions and choices our basic desire is to seek and choose what gives most glory to God.
