The Apostles of the Interior Life


"Dedicating ourselves to a full-time apostolate means that our lives are missionary. We evangelize wherever we go, especially on university campuses. In the ambit of formation, we preach parish missions and retreats, give meditations and conferences, conduct programs for vocational discernment and formation of spiritual mentors. Above all, as Jesus encountered the Samaritan woman at the well in a personal manner, a large part of our apostolate is giving spiritual guidance and direction on a one-to-one basis." http://www.apostlesofil.com/

In addition to meditative talks, the Apostles will be available during the weekend for individual Spiritual Mentoring
