Here is a list of Ignatian resources from OIS and our partners across the Ignatian community designed to accompany you on your spiritual journey through Lent.
Programs and Retreats
Jesuit Connections and Charis invite young adults (20’s and 30’s) to engage in this time of introspection, prayer and selfless giving through weekly, online small group gatherings on either Mondays or Wednesdays. Audio reflections and readings will be provided for prayer and discussion. Sign up for a small group!
Not a young adult? All are invited to pray and reflect alongside OIS’s young adult community during Lent. The audio reflections and readings are available to all who wish to join in prayer. They will be available to listen to or download here each week. You can also sign up to receive them in your inbox.
Lent is also a great time to make an Ignatian retreat, check out OIS’s calendar of upcoming retreats, or contact a Jesuit retreat house to find out what is available.

The Ignatian Examen
From Ashes to Glory invites you to take up the practice of reflecting on your day, its gifts and graces, and the progress you are making in life with Christ. It’s a way of praying the Examen through Lent, with materials by Fr. Joseph Tetlow, SJ. (IgnatianSpirituality.com)
Steadfast: A Call to Love – During Lent, in these turbulent times, how can we persevere in our work for justice with a steadfast spirit, rooted in love? The Ignatian Solidarity Network is inviting writers from the Jesuit and broader Catholic network to reflect on this question. (This series is also available in Spanish.)
