International Symposium 2022 Online Modality: 13 - 17 june 2022
Includes access for the four days: Monday 13, Tuesday 14, Thursday 16 and Friday 17 June 2022.
9.30 am to 13.30 pm, Manresa (Spain) CEST (Central European Summer Time) /UTC +2
Five hundred years after St. Ignatius did stay at Manresa (Spain), the Society of Jesus is convoking an International Symposium in the same place where the Pilgrim had his foundational experience in order to reflect on the ways of giving the mystagogy of the Spiritual Exercises in the contemporary world which continues to hunger and thirst for God. We believe that it is just as important to reflect on the theological and anthropological presuppositions which are behind these forms as it is to share the concrete methods with which they are put into practice.
The Online mode of the International Symposium is open to anybody with an interest in the Exercises, which is the Ignatian way of making the pilgrimage to God through listening to the personal call to serve the world today.
Online registration gives access to the live broadcast of the Symposium presentations and communications on 13, 14, 16 and 17 June 2022 from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm, CEST (Central European Summer Time) / UTC +2, as well as access to the recordings of the same to access them later (in case of not being able to connect live).
Language: Symposium languages will be Spanish and English with simultaneous translation of both languages.
Timetable and Schedule:
Cost: 100 euros
This registration is non- refundable
