On the first Sunday of Lent we began the Spiritual Exercises in Daily Life in our Russian Region. We did not expect such a large number of participants! In total, more than 50 people took part in the retreat. Each participant was encouraged to pray daily with Ignatian meditation and the evening examination of conscience. In addition, on the four Sundays in March there were conferences explaining the method of the Ignatian Exercises and giving an introduction to the week. Moreover, each participant had a weekly conversation with his spiritual companion.

Thanks to the availability of materials on the Internet and possibility of online conversations, the retreat was attended not only by citizens of Tomsk,but also Novosibirsk, Barnaul, and Novokuznetsk. On the organisational side, our Lenten retreat involved nine Jesuits working in Russia, Kyrgyzstan and Belarus, as well as one Polish woman from the Christian Life Community in Krakow. The exercises ended on Saturday, 2 April.
