Mission Integration

Busy Person Retreat


This semester, Mission Integration is piloting a new opportunity for Loyola employees during Lent. While this is type of retreat is a tradition for students, we are now able to extend this to our Loyola colleagues.

The grace of this retreat is how malleable and flexible it is, knowing that people have a wide range of commitments, schedules, and availability. We will provide some suggestions for prayer but know that the retreat will be rooted in where you are at. Please use additional resources of your own or from your spiritual director during this retreat!

The Busy Person Retreat will involve the following:
  • Attending an opening orientation on March 2nd from 12-1pm (in person or on zoom depending on protocols at the time, lunch will be provided if we are able)
  • Praying 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time during Lent (Beginning with the week of March 7 and concluding with the week of April 11).
  • Meeting with a spiritual director each week for 30 minutes during Lent. We will pair you with someone and the two of you will determine an appropriate time to meet.
