Regis College Fall 2018 Film Series - Sanctuary: The Search for a Home

Event Details

Regis College's Fall 2018 Film Series looks at the desire for a place of belonging and community that is rooted in what it means to be human.

Regis College faculty member, Monty Williams, SJ, will present the series. His courses and research explores the dynamics of desire and narrative in spirituality using contemporary critical theory and film. His work in spirituality and direction started in his formation as a Jesuit in the early seventies, and inlcudes teaching workshops, retreat and spiritual direction, and facilitation in discernment. In the summers he can usually be found giving retreats and workshops throughout Europe, Australia, Asia and North America.
