Unwritten is about figuring out your story—who you are, who the people are that have helped you figure that out, and who you want to become. Unwritten is designed to help you become more aware of the story that they have been living, and to help them think about how they might write a better story. The retreat provides individual/group reflections, team building activities on the challenge course, and meaningful conversations.
Retreats are a great way to expand your experience at Loyola by forming relationships with others, exploring your faith and strengthening your spiritual foundation. Many different retreats are offered throughout the year. This fall we are offering Loyola 360's for first-year students, Transfer Student Retreat, SEARCH, Unwritten for sophomores and juniors, and C.C.C. Information on these retreats this fall can be found on our website.
Come and learn more about Catholicism and the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 14. For more information, contact Dr. John Paul Salay, email@example.com.
Christian Life Communities (CLCs) are small faith sharing groups that are based around three pillars: spirituality, community, and mission. CLC participants meet weekly in a small community (6-10 people) for prayer and discussion about where they have found God in their lives.
Every Wednesday during the fall and spring semesters at 9:30 p.m. in Madonna della Strada Chapel. Taizé Prayer is filled with song, scripture and silent meditation. It is based on the Liturgy of the Hours evening prayer and is modeled on the style as practiced in the Taizé Community in France. The sanctuary is candlelit the music is repetitive and chant-like. Those who attend regularly find a profound peace and tranquility in this style of prayer.
The Loyola Experience is lived at a frenetic, fast-forward pace making our lives a frenzy of classes, homework, research, meetings, family obligations, social engagements, and co-curricular commitments. Noon Tunes creates a space in which all students, regardless of their faith background, can “press pause” for a few moments each week when a student leader and/or Loyola staff member will put together a playlist of music that explores a particular theme. Drop by the Damen Cinema anytime between 12noon and 1pm on Wednesdays to slow down a little, unplug, and join their peers for a few minutes of guided reflection.
