Praying with Grief and Loss with Fr. Brendan McManus

Saturday, April 27
9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Fee: $50


Praying with grief and loss is not just in the ‘head’.  Grief has to be worked out through the body, in walking and reflecting. Brendan McManus, SJ will share the story of his own journey through grief and his experience of what Ignatian wisdom has to teach us about finding God on the trails of life. Come learn how God works through situations and people, and through sometimes complicated emotions.  See how the challenging process of letting go of control helps us find spiritual freedom. Learn the power of symbols, rituals and pilgrimage on our journeys through grief.

Fr. Brendan McManus, SJ grew up on a farm in Northern Ireland and worked in the UK’s computer industry for several years before joined the Jesuits in Dublin. He studied philosophy in Dublin, theology in Colombia, and later was school chaplain in the Jesuit school in Galway for some years before walking the Camino de Santiago in 2011 and writing a book, Redemption Road, in memory of his brother.  He currently works as a Spiritual Director and retreat giver in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
