More Spiritual Wisdom from Our Jesuit Lenten Speakers
Each Lent the Midwest Jesuits host days of prayer and reflection for friends and benefactors (learn more). So many of our attendees have asked for “more” that we’ve pulled together additional resources from some of our Jesuit presenters.
We invite all to enjoy the videos, and, as always, we welcome your feedback and ideas. We will update this page as new materials become available.
