Event description
Dr Luigi Gioia, spiritual writer and research associate at the Von Hügel Institute, joins us for this study day on the life of prayer.

About this Event

"Wrestling with God like Jacob, questioning God like Moses, eagerly waiting for God to act like Paul: our life of faith prayer helps us to recognize God’s presence and action in our lives and be responsive to it." So writes Dr Luigi Gioia, leader of our study day on 29 February.

He was Associate Professor of Systematic Theology at the Pontifical University of S. Anselmo in Rome and has lectured on Ecclesiology, Trinity, Theology of History, Anthropology and Spirituality, Liturgy and Ecclesiology and Justification both at graduate and undergraduate level.

Luigi has been actively involved in a variety of church contexts in Europe (France, UK, Italy, Germany, Hungary and Switzerland) in academic, pastoral, and administrative roles. Moreover, he has given many academic talks and preached retreats in Korea, China, Russia, Philippines, Ghana, Australia, Canada and USA.

Besides his academic works, Luigi Gioia has written several books of spirituality in Italian and in English aimed at a broad readership. His book Say it to God: In Search of Prayer was the Archbishop of Canterbury's Lent Book for 2018.

The cost of the event, £5, covers the cost of refreshments: a sandwich lunch is included, and tea and coffee are served throughout the day.

If the cost is a barrier, please contact our office (info@stbenetschurch.org).
