A 4-Day Ignatian, Silent Retreat for Men & Women
The Catholic view of salvation requires us to integrate all of the very rich and full teachings on salvation. What is the role of Christ's death and resurrection? How do we understand the link between God's unmerited grace and our own free will? How do the sacraments fit into our salvation? What is the role of performing good works? Why is it necessary to pray for perseverance in the life of grace rather than believe that once a person is saved, he or she is always saved? These are the questions Fr. Pacwa welcomes you to pray and reflect on with him during this 4-day retreat.
Groups Attending: Individuals, St. Bede
In the year 2000, Father Mitchell Pacwa, SJ established Ignatius Productions, a Catholic media production apostolate, under the Society of Jesus, whose mission is to teach people the scriptures, educate Catholics about their Faith, and promote unity and understanding within the Mystical Body of Christ. Fr. Pacwa received his BA in Philosophy and Theology from the University of Detroit, summa cum laude. He was ordained a Catholic priest in 1976 with the Society of Jesus and then continued his studies and then received his Master of Divinity and STB. from the Jesuit School of Theology of Loyola University, magna cum laude. At Vanderbilt University, he received his Master of Arts as well as his PhD in Old Testament. Fr. Pacwa is fluent in twelve languages and has a unique understanding of the peoples and cultures of the Middle East. Father’s extensive travels to the Holy Land have inspired him to write the “Holy Land Prayer Book,” which has been published by his Jesuit apostolate, Ignatius Productions. Fr. Pacwa also has the privilege of being bi-ritual, which means he also celebrates the Maronite Mass of the Eastern Catholic Church. He is best known for his appearances on the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN), where he currently hosts two television programs – “Threshold of Hope” and “EWTN LIVE” and as the weekly host of EWTN Radio “OPEN LINE” program.
