Full course description
A manual for directors rather than a book to be read, The Spiritual Exercises emerged out of St. Ignatius Loyola’s personal experience of conversion and has subsequently had a major impact on modern spirituality. Part I (SPT 551) will focus on the conversion and life of Ignatius and will be offered during an intensive weekend at Our Lady of the Hill parish center in Columbia, SC, with the option to join the class by video conference on Zoom. Part II (SPT 552) will focus on the structure and dynamics of the Exercises and will be offered fully online, with a flexible time frame, allowing students to complete the course at their own pace over a 6-week period: June 14-August 5. Each part is offered as a one-credit course.
