A retreat with Father Philip Chircop, SJ, has been arranged for August 24-29, 2015. However, before we can confirm this we need to know how many are committed to attending. His heavy schedule doesn’t permit him to come at an earlier time in the summer. Would you please indicate your intention and commitment to attending by contacting St. Joseph Renewal Centre, Mabou, a.s.a.p .
Fr. Philip Chircop, S.J. is a Jesuit priest born on the Mediterranean Island of Malta. He has worked in high school, university and parish settings in various capacities. But more recently he has been heavily involved in retreat work. He is a seeker always looking for fresh ways to proclaim the Good News hopefully helping people to embrace real and radical changes that lead to transformation in Christ Jesus.
