Living Theology Summer School 2013
Saturday 27th July to Monday 29th July
Living Theology at the Bar Convent is a weekend Summer School organised by a lay committee and taught by Jesuits and others who have an interest in the teaching and spirituality of Ignatius of Loyola. It offers a friendly, open, and welcoming venue for the study of a variety of issues of relevance to people interested in Theology and Spirituality, and particularly related to today’s society.
A warm community spirit develops over the three days which encourages wider discussion and sharing. Most participants tend to be Catholics, but people from other denominations are welcome.
Consult the Living Theology Website for further details.
