The Mission of Cura is to "love one another as I have loved you" (John 13:34).
Cura Personalis (care of the whole person) stems from the desire to see and care for a person as God sees and cares for that person. We seek to listen more deeply to God and others.
Cura groups meet once a week for an hour, and have the opportunity to attend retreats and activities throughout the year.
Goals of Cura
Community — Ignatian Reflection — Care for Others
- Recognize that the presence, love, and care that they experience in Cura is grounded in an intentional, living, radical Christian community and tradition.
- Articulate a particular instance in which a decision he/she made was a direct result of shared prayer and/or group reflection and will develop a language of discernment in his/her life. Learn a variety of spiritual prayer practices (Lectio Divina, contemplation of place, Praying with art, centering, meditation, etc.) that will serve to instill a habit of prayer, and deepen your relationship with God.
- Commit to a life of service to the poor in our midst and building a just world.
