Summer Retreats 2017

Summer Preached Retreat: “Everyday God”

Date: Sunday, June 18 - Saturday June 24, 2017.  
God's grace is blowing in the wind and all we have to do is open up our sails. We are flooded with God's grace in midst of the ordinariness of everyday life. All we have to do is pay attention, open our eyes and become mystics. "The Christian of the future will be a mystic or will not exist at all.” (Karl Rahner).  This retreat will  be an invitation to embrace and experience our  Everyday God.
Quiet retreats are conducted in an atmosphere conducive to prayer for oneself and others.  Quiet is maintained especially in the common areas and bedroom floors of the houses.  There will be conversation at meals.
Presenter: Fr. Anthony Ciorra, ordained in 1973, has ministered in parish life, teaching, administration, retreat work, and formation ministries. He has graduate degrees in psychology, history and pastoral theology. He has a Ph. D. in Theology from Fordham University.  His publications include Everyday Mysticism, and he co-authored Moral Formation in the Parish.   He edited the book, Vatican II: A Universal Call to Holiness, and his latest book is Beauty: A Way to God  (Paulist Press, 2013). He is currently Professor of Theology and Interim Vice President for Mission and Catholic identity at Sacred Heart University, Fairfield, Connecticut.
