Faith Issues Today Five-Part Series -

Event Details

Presented by Michael Saver and based on the work of Parker J. Palmer, author of Let Your Life Speak and A Hidden Wholeness

This Lenten series invites you to self-reflection exploring your own experience of important themes of the inner life (change, giftedness, vocation, healing, integrity, paradox) using the Circle of Trust process originated by Parker J. Palmer. The process sets out a way to spiritually companion one other that is deeply caring and respectful.
Together, we will explore and practice the spiritual disciplines of presence, embracing silence, respectful deep listening, unconditional personal regard and the use of open, honest questions as a support to discernment. The process is completely invitational – participation is always at an individual’s comfort level.

For more information, please contact the facilitator, Michael Saver at michael.saver@rogers.com

Event Details

Presented by Dr. Peter Bisson, S.J. (Provincial Superior of the Jesuits in English Canada)

In the 476 years since its founding, the Society of Jesus has convened only 35 general congregations. On October 2, 2016, General Congregation 36 convened in Rome. A general congregation is the supreme governing body of the Society of Jesus. 200 plus delegates from around the world attended the congregation. All nine Jesuit provincials from Canada and the U.S attended. Fr. Peter Bisson will describe the process, topics, and decisions made that will guide the Jesuits and the Church in the coming years.

The logo for GC 36 was inspired by Pope Francis’ message to the Jesuits on the 200th anniversary of the restoration of the Society of Jesus. The pope urged Jesuits to discern in difficult times; to be receptive of and obedient to the will of God; and to row with him in the service of the church according to the call of Jesus to his disciples: “Put out into the deep.” On the GC36 logo, the IHS represents the Society’s boat in the church, and the waves represent the sea where Jesuits are invited to enter and row out into, toward frontiers. The cross represents the sail where the Spirit blows, helping the Society row. The flame above the cross represents “a fire that kindles other fires,” a link to the Jesuit charism.
