The Changing Images of God

Facilitator: Fr. John Quigley, OFM

 

 

Sunday, July 9, 5:30 PM —
Friday, July 14, 9:00 AM

 

Our understanding of God changes with the circumstances of our lives. In the scriptures, individuals had strong and varied experiences of God and they formed their own personal images of God. Studying the life of St. Francis gives us particularly good insights into how God is experienced according to our needs. In this retreat, Fr. Quigley presents diverse images of God throughout scripture, the life of St Francis, and current events. Our question for reflection during the retreat: "What have been your images of God?" Includes daily Eucharist.


Offering:
Overnight: $455. Includes 5 breakfasts, 4 lunches, & 5 dinners.
Commuter: $400. Includes 4 lunches & 5 dinners.

$25 early bird discount if registered by June 9.
$75 Nonrefundable deposit.


Fr. John Quigley, OFM, a Franciscan friar and priest, is an accomplished public speaker and a talented artist. He is a member of the Province of St. John the Baptist (Cincinnati, Ohio) of the Order of Friars Minor (OFM). Fr.

He was the Director of Franciscans International (New York, Geneva, Bangkok) and the Coordinator for Justice, Peace and Care for Creation for the Franciscan Friars in Rome. Currently he leads Franciscan Pilgrimages to Rome and Assisi.
