Ignatian Spiritual Accompaniment of Homeless Persons in Recovery

Event Date: 
Thursday, October 3, 2013 - 7:00pm

Regis College will host Beyond 'Ministry': Ignatian Spiritual
Accompaniment of Homeless Persons in Recovery, an event in its Jesus
the Homeless Transformative Education Series. John Mooney will reflect
on his experience as the coordinator of the Ignatian Spirituality
Project in Washington D.C., which provides Ignatian spiritual
accompaniment to homeless persons in recovery. The presentation will
challenge assumptions about homelessness, marginalized persons and the
role of spirituality in the promotion of justice and human dignity.

The event will take place at Regis College, the Jesuit School of
Theology at the University of Toronto, on Thursday, October 3, 2013 at
7:00pm. Following the presentation, participants are invited to join
in a fifteen minute, silent candle light vigil with the provocative
"Jesus the Homeless" statue, which was installed on the entrance plaza
to the college in April 2013.
