The last couple of minutes at the end of each Brebeuf Jesuit school day are spent in quiet reflection.
This is an opportunity for all members of our school community to consider moments during the day for which they are grateful, moments in which they were challenged, and moments in which they may have fallen short. In this prayer, our students, faculty, and staff are asked to recognize God is in all these moments, to be thankful for each day, and to strive to do better the next day.
This time of reflection is also known as the Daily Examen.
The Daily Examen is a prayer by which St. Ignatius, founder of the Society of Jesus, attempted to recognize the presence of God in his daily life. His followers in the Jesuit tradition continue this daily practice.
Alumni, parents, and friends are invited to join the Brebeuf Jesuit school community in this afternoon time of reflection. Whether you are at your desk, doing chores at home, or running errands, settle yourself for a couple of minutes, and join Brebeuf Jesuit students, faculty, and staff for a moment of prayer.
