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.
