Support the Jesuits' Lent appeal

support our lent appeal

Ruth shares her experience of a week of guided prayer retreat run by the Jesuits at her parish.

I decided to do the Week of Guided Prayer after hearing about it at mass one Sunday evening. It was one of the most important decisions I have ever made. During and after the week I was so free of anything that troubled me before, everything was clear and I felt nothing but joy all the time, it was incredible! I learned how I can find God in all things, which brings so much more meaning to these things.” Ruth

Ruth is one of a growing number of Christians whose lives are changed by retreats given by Jesuit-trained spiritual directors in parishes throughout the country. There are many more people like Ruth who need a deeper a relationship with God but are unable to attend a residential retreat and do not access to retreats at their parishes. 

This Lent, could you journey alongside people like Ruth and help them to find peace and joy in this troubled world through the knowledge that God can be found in all things?

By giving something up this Lent and donating the money you save towards the Spirituality outreach programme, your gift can become that life-changing open door for people like Ruth to know and experience God through Ignatian Spirituality. 

Donate Now

Your donation will enable the Jesuits to recruit and train more spiritual directors who can introduce many more people to the Spiritual Exercises – a compilation of meditations, prayers, and contemplative practices developed by St. Ignatius Loyola to help people deepen their relationship with God.

All gifts large and small will bring us one more step closer to achieve our goal of spreading the word of God to the world through Ignatian Spirituality!
