February 19-21, 2016 – a Silent Weekend Retreat for Men with Fr. Peter Fennessy, SJ
Retreat Title: “Seeking the Face of Jesus with Rembrandt and St. Ignatius”

Four years ago the Detroit Institute of Arts mounted an exhibition called Rembrandt and the Face of Jesus. Fr. Fennessy, whom the DIA used as one of their consultants on the project, sensed the harmony between Rembrandt’s search for an authentic face of Jesus and St. Ignatius’ quest in his Spiritual Exercises for an ever deeper knowledge of Christ, between the art of the painter and the contemplation of the saint. He will share those insights with us in this retreat as we too seek the face of the Lord.
