Facilitator:  Michael Higgins, Ph.D.

Friday 5:00-6:30 PM check-in, no evening meal, departure Sunday after lunch

"Thomas Merton, Henri Nouwen and Donald Nicholl: Pilgrims of Wisdom and Peace" is designed to look at the many points of convergence in the writing and witness of these three extraordinary twentieth-century spiritual figures. During the course of the retreat we will examine their ministry of prayer grounded in contemplation, their commitment as peacemakers, their role as spiritual diarists of compellilng relevance, their deep and perduring ecumenical, indeed interfaith, appeal well into our own century, and their personal integrity or holiness of life.
