Fr. John W. Michalowski, S.J.

For 23 years, I taught high school, mostly in Maine and Chicago, for 23 years first as a layman and then as a Jesuit. I completed my M.Div. at the Jesuit School of Theology in Chicago and a Th.M. at Weston School of Theology writing on the American Liturgical Movement. After completing the associate's program in Guelph, I spent 5 1/2 years as the director of Campion Renewal Center in Weston, MA, and then became pastor of Saints Mary and Joseph Parish in Salem, NH for 9 1/2 years. I taught Christology in the lay ministry training program in the Diocese of Manchester, NH for 8 years, gave talks on Ignatian spirituality. For the past few years, I have ministered at St. Peter Parish in Charlotte, NH, and worked with both the liturgy and social justice commissions. For the past ten years, I've directed individuals and groups on 19th annotation retreats.

An Adullt Eucharist: Unity, Solidarity, Service

How do we go beyond a childhood understanding of the Eucharist? This 2 hour programs was developed for parents whose children were participating in their First Communion Retreat. How do we go beyond me and Jesus to the project of solidarity with the world that the Eucharist calls us to?

Type: Day of reflection/prayer
The Nineteenth Annotation and Community

`To see Ignatius as a "lone ranger" praying in the cave of Manresa is to fall  into the American cultural trap of individualism. The Exercises call us to join the community of disciples working with our God who labors to reconcile all things. Praying the Spiritual Exercises in the 19th Annotation form with a small community can open one to this broader working of grace.

Day programs - 3 to 5 hour

Type: Day of reflection/prayer
