Sacred Story-40 Week Daily Prayer Program

If you are unfamiliar with the book, Forty Weeks, or the Sacred Story Examen method, it is a 40 week daily prayer program for a deeper expression of our faith to develop a closer, personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Following St. Ignatius’ path to Christ, this program encourages everyone to a life of daily prayer, receiving the graces of frequent Reconciliation and engaging in spiritual discernment. If you have tried using Forty Weeks in the past but never finished, the beginning of Lent is a perfect time to start, restart, or continue again! With support of tools from the Sacred Story Institute, a daily plan for prayer and the mutual support of our community, we will begin once again the process used in other parishes in the Archdiocese that can be life changing.
