As a participant in the Jubilee Year of Mercy, Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology will offer the “70x7 Faith, Family and Forgiveness, Part III: Developing a Heart of Mercy” retreat and lecture series from April through November 2016. With music, prayer and conversation, each day hopes to bring participants to, in the words of Pope Francis, “contemplate the Face of Mercy,” Jesus Christ.
The retreat and lecture series feature a range of topics centered on the theme of mercy, such as “Keys to Unlocking a Heart of Forgiveness and Mercy” by internationally renowned speaker Robert Enright, Ph.D., and “St. Thérèse: Little Servant of God’s Merciful Love” by author and adjunct professor Rev. Frederick Miller, S.T.D. Click here» to see the complete retreat series, and click here» to see the complete lecture series.
Retreat participants attest to the many grace-filled moments and spiritual renewal that these days bring. December’s retreat brought “further healing in my own life and that of my family” to one participant and led another to an “awareness of gratitude to God for his forgiveness of me.” A participant from January’s retreat said that the retreat gave her “more to ponder and bring to prayer.”
All retreats are held on campus at Seton Hall University and include Mass. Most retreats take place from 9 a.m. to noon and cost $10 to attend. Longer retreats are from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., include lunch and cost $25 to attend.
