Prayer Walking/Rules for Eating

February 20 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

St. Ignatius, Ignatian way

In his autobiography, St. Ignatius of Loyola called himself “the pilgrim.” What do pilgrims do? They walk! Did you know that it’s easy to add prayer to your exercise by Prayer Walking? Come join us as we introduce you to both prayer walking and to St. Ignatius’ Rules for Eating, found in his Spiritual Exercises. Yes, Ignatius was offering eating tips 500 years ago! Bring a comfortable pair of shoes, and if you have any health issues, please check with your doctor first. Lunch is included. Guided by Paul Gallagher.

Paul Gallagher, D.Min. is a longtime faith formation leader in the Archdiocese of Baltimore and also serves as a Regional Sales Manager for Loyola Press. Paul used the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius to get his own health back on track and looks forward to helping you with your own transformation. Paul received his doctorate at Catholic University of America, focusing on the positive effects Ignatian Spirituality can have on a person’s health and well-being. His blog,, has been viewed by thousands of people all over the world, and through his retreats, blog posts and spiritual direction, he looks to help people transform their lives by integrating Ignatian practices into their daily routines.
