The Journey of Holy Week

Event details:

THE JOURNEY OF HOLY WEEK RETREAT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO CONCERNS AND PRECAUTIONS RELATED TO COVID-19.

Palm Sunday, April 5, 2020 through Easter Sunday, April 12, 2020  

Summary:

This retreat will help participants accompany Jesus during this time of passion, death and resurrection. The focus is not on the violence done to Jesus, but on intimacy with him in their midst. This time will help attendees deal with their own diminishment and losses by seeing Jesus dealing with his.

Facilitator:

Father Bob Dufford, SJ, is an internationally known musician (St. Louis Jesuits) and composer of liturgical music. He is best known for his work in composing liturgical music (Sing to the Mountains, All the Ends of the Earth, Like a Shepherd, Love One Another, Be Not Afraid, Behold the Lamb of God, etc.) He lives at the Creighton University Retreat Center in Griswold, Iowa. He provides spiritual direction for clergy in the Des Moines Diocese. He spent 14 years at the Jesuit Retreat House in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, and has preached many retreats and parish missions.

Over the last seven years he has been composing instrumental music patterned on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius to help people’s prayer lives. The collection, comprising 34 pieces totaling over three hours of orchestral music, will soon be published by O.C.P. probably under the title Tongues As of Fire.
