Jesuit Connections Chicago April 2019 Event Registration
Magis: the tension of "more" in a liturgical season of "less" A Lenten Morning of Reflection
Saturday, April 6, 2019 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Ascension Catholic Church 808 S. East Ave, Oak Park, IL
Speaker: Lauren Hackman-Brooks Chaplain, Loyola University Chicago
The concept of
Magis, often translated as “more”, is inspiring, challenging and
often misappropriated by individuals and institutions. With other young
adults, reconsider “Magis” this Lent through individual prayer
and conversation during our annual Jesuit Connections
morning of reflection. Together we’ll explore how practices from our
tradition and contemporary culture- Sabbath, self-care, simplicity,
service, and Scripture- might help us redirect our pursuit of “more” in
service of the “greater” glory of God and the common
good. To register, please provide the information below by March 30, 2019. For more information, please contact Dan O'Brien at 773-975-5755 or email@example.com.
