Jim Broderick King '87, Former Director of Ignatian Spirituality
People of all faiths, people with developing faith, they're all people that Jesuit education embraces.
There are multiple opportunities throughout the school year to praise, worship and thank God through engagement in the Sacraments, prayer and retreats.
Worship & Prayer
List of 6 items.
The Mass is the central liturgical ritual in the Roman Catholic Church where the bread and wine are consecrated and become the body and blood of Christ. It is a key formational experience in the faith-life of the school, so Masses are celebrated regularly throughout the school year. Learn more
In addition to Masses, Regis Jesuit High School offers students a variety of communal prayer experiences that are based in and inspired by scripture and other theological texts.
There are opportunities for the Sacrament of Reconciliation several times during the school year. Students can receive this sacrament on class-level retreats, during the liturgical seasons of Advent and Lent and by appointment with one of the Jesuit priests.
Examen of Conciousness
Steeped in Ignatian spirituality, Regis Jesuit High School invites all of its community members to practice the Examen of Consciousness daily. At a designated time each day, all work and activities stop so that everyone can be prompted to reflect on the following three questions:
How has God been actively present in my life?
How have I responded to God’s presence in my life?
How do I wish to respond to God’s loving presence from this point on?
The Retreat Program at Regis Jesuit operates on a comprehensive four-year track designed to allow students to explore their faith through different lenses and develop an authentic relationship with God. Along the way, students also grow closer to each other and come to understand that they are fully and completely loved. Kairos, a four-day retreat during a student's junior year, is patterned after the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. The retreat is regularly cited by parents and students alike as the most memorable experience of their time at Regis Jesuit. Learn more
The Ignatian Year
May 20, 2021 marked the 500th anniversary of St. Ignatius’ conversion — that fateful day when Ignatius the soldier, struck by a cannonball, began his transformation into Ignatius the pilgrim. From that date through his Feast Day on July 31 in 2022, all Jesuit works celebrate the Ignatian Year. Here in Denver, the Jesuit apostolates and the communities we serve gathered for several special events and celebrations in commemoration of this milestone year and were graced by greater openness to SEEING ALL THINGS NEW IN CHRIST!
