Savouring the Sacred:

The Spiritual Practice of Eating


In our fast-paced lives, meals often become just another task.

Imagine transforming every bite into a moment of presence, gratitude, and connection. Drawing from centuries of Ignatian and Jesuit wisdom, join Anne Lukin, Sheri Bishop, and Greg Kennedy to explore how meals can be an act of meditation and prayer, transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary; connecting us more deeply with the food on our plate and the world around us. Bring a snack or a favorite dish for a shared meditation that nourishes both body and soul.

Rediscover the hidden joy and grace in eating and carry this prayerful attitude into every part of your day.
