MARGARET SILF, renowned author..

...will be in town for 2 events!


What does it really mean to be people of faith when traditional religious structures seem to be straining
and breaking down? When dangerous fault-lines are opening up between faith and theism, between
different faith traditions, and within our own traditions and practices? Is faith simply our assent to a
series of theological propositions, or is it a question of trust? What is this mystery we call God and how
might we be in relationship with such mystery? Who is Jesus for us? And what about faith community?

An opportunity to explore questions we might not dare ask in church.

Thursday, November 29, 2012, at 7 p.m.
Fulford Hall, 1444 Union Ave., Montreal (Metro McGill)


The Ignatian Spirituality Centre (514 481-1064)
The Spiritual Direction Group, Diocese of Montreal (Anglican)


An opportunity to reflect on some of the key events in Ignatius’ story, and uncover the patterns of how divine grace works through human imperfection to bring about transformation beyond anything we can imagine, not just in the life of an evolving saint, but in our own lives too. Based on Margaret’s latest book ‘Just Call Me Lopez’, Getting to the Heart of Ignatius Loyola, Loyola Press, Chicago, 2012.

This theme provides a framework in which we can explore topics like discernment, detachment, living with tension, and the power of visionary experience, as demonstrated in the initially very ‘limping’ life of Ignatius and in our own limping efforts to live into God’s Dream

On Friday, November 30, from 7 pm to 9pm, and, Saturday, December 1, from 9 am to 4 pm. Mass celebrated at 4pm. Coffee and snacks provided on both days, however, please bring a lunch for Saturday.

At: Loyola High School, 7272 Sherbrooke West, corner West Broadway, H4B 1R2
Cost: $125
To register, please contact the Ignatian Centre at 514-481-1064 or by email at
