Lunchtime Examen

Lunchtime Examen Banner

SCU's Division of Mission and Ministry hosts a weekly Lunchtime Examen every Thursday for all students, faculty, and staff. The Examen was created by St. Ignatius of Loyola as a technique of mindful reflection on the events of the day in order to detect the presence and invitation of the Divine.

A team of faculty, staff, and students will take turns leading the Examen each Thursday over Zoom. Aware of just how much we are all going through these days, the team hopes to provide a calm, welcoming presence for 10-15 minutes each week as we journey together in community through the Examen. We hope students, faculty, and staff from any religious, secular, or spiritual identity feel supported and welcomed in this experience.

"The team that has led these Examens have been so gentle, kind, and supportive. Taking a few minutes out of my day to pause and reflect is helping me understand just how essential the reflection process is at a Jesuit University."
