The Apostleship of Prayer is offering a series of mini-retreats for young adults given across the Midwest by a team of six young Jesuits. The project is called “Hearts on Fire” and the focus of the retreats is to help young adults live their Christian faith in daily life. The Jesuits have adapted some elements of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius in what they hope is a catchy, inspiring way.
The two days include Eucharistic adoration, confessions, talks, discussion groups, contemplation and even musical entertainment. They have completed two retreats already, in Milwaukee and Iowa City and July 9-10 they will be in Columbus, Ohio; July 16-17, in Chicago; and July 23-24, in Des Moines.
The six Jesuits leading the retreats are Father Chris Collins, Boston College; Father Phil Hurley, Apostleship of Prayer, Milwaukee; Mister Michael Rossmann, Loyola University, Chicago; Mister Joe Simmons, Loyola University, Chicago; Mister Michael Magree, St. Joseph’s Prep., Philadelphia; Mister Michael Wegenka, Fordham University/Oxford University.
