Heart of the University, Faculty Retreat Series 2015-2016
The Heart of the University Retreat Series is offered primarily for the faculty who, as the heart of the University, express its deepest convictions by their teaching. It is about the human heart as a place of encounter with God.
These retreats will give faculty and administrators of faith the opportunity for input and guided reflection. The spirit of the series is captured by the Latin "cor ad cor loquitur," heart speaks to heart, which was the motto of John Henry Newman, author of The Idea of a University. The theme of this year's retreat series is Mercy as Spiritual Paradigm, which will be explored in the following presentations:
- Mercy and Compassion: Reawakening Our Conscience
- Mercy and Community: The Marvelous Exchanges of a Prodigal Father
- Mercy and Forgiveness: A Spiritual Pilgrimage
- Mercy and Trust: Can we trust in and accept God's mercy?
