A Grateful Heart: Is Your Glass Half-Empty or Half-Full?

November 3 @ 3:00 pm - November 5 @ 1:00 pm

Jesuit, Priest, Weekend Retreat

Thanksgiving is an important holiday here in the United States. It is a time to stop and reflect on who/what we are grateful for. How consciously grateful are you day-to-day? When good things come your way, do you thank God? And when difficulties come your way, do you thank God? Are you grateful for everything? Certainly Jesus expressed gratitude. And the one leper who was cured came back to Jesus to say “thank you!” We will look at the importance of a grateful heart in Scripture, in the life of St. Ignatius of Loyola (founder of the Jesuits) and in the writings of  Henri Nouwen. Please bring a pen, notepad and your own Bible.

Fr. Harry Geib will lead this weekend retreat, which will feature presentations, group discussions, personal reflection time and Mass on Saturday and Sunday. You can check-in beginning at 3pm on Friday. Dinner will be served at 6pm and the retreat will begin at 7pm.

Fr. Harry Geib is a member of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). Prior to the Jesuits, Fr. Harry studied gerontology. As a Jesuit, Fr. Harry worked with Jesuit Refugee Service in Thailand (Cambodian/Hmong refugees), in Malaysia (Vietnamese refugees) and in Uganda (Sudanese refugees). After completing a Master’s degree in Social Work, he worked as the health care coordinator for his Jesuit province, followed by campus ministry at Wheeling Jesuit University. Currently, Fr. Harry is the superior for the community of senior Jesuits in Baltimore.
