CLC Day of Prayer
Keynote Speaker: Austen Ivereigh 
We are delighted that Austen Ivereigh has agreed to speak at our upcoming Day of Prayer on Sunday, March 21st, 9 am to 12:30 pm. Many of you may know his biographies on Pope Francis: The Great Reformer and Wounded Shepherd.  Most recently, Pope Francis collaborated with Austen Ivereigh in the writing of the newly published book, Let Us Dream.  In his talk for CLC, Austen will focus on the question of synodality, Pope Francis's vision for embedding communal discernment in the life and culture of the Church, not just for the Church but for humanity.  Watch for details to come! 

Lenten Resources 

This year, there is a wealth of resources available to help us observe the liturgical season of Lent with prayer, repentance, and recommitment to being on mission with Christ. Here is a list drawing from our Ignatian traditions and related to our NY regional mission on Care for Our Common Home. 
  • Ignatian Resources for Lent 2021 compiled by the Office of Ignatian Spirituality can be found HERE!  Resources include retreats, prayer, stations of the cross, the Ignatian Awareness Examen, books, and video reflections on the call to solidarity and justice by the Ignatian Solidarity Network.
  • Global Catholic Climate Movement is offering a Lenten program with weekly themes based on Laudato Si' followed by a week of concrete action suggestions. Weekly themes include consumerism, meat, electricity, plastic and advocacy. To learn more and to sign up, go HERE!
  • St Francis Xavier Environmental Ministry offers a Lenten Calendar based on Laudato Si with ideas for prayer, reflection and action. It is organized in an easy to read 2-page format which you can find HERE!
