The LMU Center for Religion and Spirituality and the Loyola Institute for Spirituality jointly invite you to this special webinar with Jesuit Father Allan F. Deck on the Universal Apostolic Preferences for the worldwide Society of Jesus (Jesuits).

The Preferences, or UAPs, are four areas vital for our world today, which the Jesuits will pay special attention to in the next ten years:

  • Showing the way to God: Show the way to God through the Spiritual Exercises and discernment 
  • Walking with the Excluded: Walk with the poor, the outcasts of the world, those whose dignity has been violated, in a mission of reconciliation and justice
  • Journeying with Youth: Accompany young people in the creation of a hope-filled future
  • Caring for our Common Home: Collaborate, with Gospel depth, for the protection and renewal of God’s Creation

You can learn more about the UAPs on the Jesuits.Global Web site.

To Participate
This event is free and open to the public, and will be streamed on Facebook Live at 9 a.m. Pacific Time. Viewers will be able to participate in the Q&A via the comments section.
