We are kicking off the start of another year with Opening Receptions in each CLA city. Join the CLA community in your city (or the city nearest you) to welcome the new cohort, to show support for the returning one, and to reconnect with friends.
This year, we are hosting six Opening Receptions. Choose your city below and click the button to register.
As part of their "Pizza and a Pint and Ignatian Conversation" series, Jesuit Connectino will be presenting "A Company of Grace: Inspiring the Next Generation of Ignatian Women Leaders" on Wednesday, April 12, 2017 beginning at 6:30 PM. The panelists will include:
On Thursday, April 6, 2017, current participants, alumni, and friends of Contemplative Leaders in Action (CLA) Boston will gather in Brighton to raise funds and support for CLA at the third annual Discerning Spirits event.
Started in 2014, Discerning Spirits is a unique tasting event that invites local brewers, distillers, and winemakers to share tastes of their products, and, more importantly - the stories behind them. Not just any tasting event, Discerning Spirits is an intimate evening where participating vendors - known as Discerning Partners - give attendees a glimpse into the discernment process that led them to their craft. In between sampling the wide variety of products on offer and enjoying camaraderie with the CLA community, attendees will hear firsthand from our Discerning Partners about what it takes to listen to one’s deepest desires, follow where that might lead – and how it can bear fruit to benefit others.
2017 Discerning Partners include:
Sponsorships, which come with early access to the event, tickets, and recognition in event materials, are still available, as are individual tickets. If you can’t make it, we welcome donations of all sizes. Proceeds from Discerning Spirits go directly to support the experience of CLA participants, including monthly meetings, retreats, and curriculum materials.
Don’t miss out on this unique event!
Thank you to our sponsors, who make Discerning Spirits possible!

Thank you to everyone who attended one of our Ignatian Advent Gatherings! We were humbled by the show of support for CLA and the strong presence of the Ignatian community in each of the cities where we hosted an event. In total, more than 400 people attended one of our gatherings. Thank you especially to those who offered reflections for us, and everyone who helped make these events possible.
We hope you found the gatherings edifying during this Advent season, and we hope that you will join us for another Ignatian event soon!
Below are some pictures from different cities. If you have any pictures from an Advent Gathering you'd like to share, please feel free send them to us (firstname.lastname@example.org), and we'd be happy to post them here for all to see!
