[2021/CR/03] Global Pandemic as Eucharist Experience (A Reflection by Etienne Grieu, SJ)

On 06 August 2021

In part, based on a reflection given by Fr. Etienne Grieu SJ (Rector of  Centre Sévres, Paris) at a meeting of the French Province of the Society of Jesus. For Fr. Grieu, the Covid-19 pandemic constituted a malheur collectif or "collective misfortune" for humanity. A key lesson learnt from this misfortune is that we cannot live in isolation; rather we live through each other. Interestingly, this is expressed in and through the Holy Eucharist of our Lord, a broken body, shared and one at the same time. It’s time out with God to appreciate His presence in the Pandemic from this unique perspective

An online conference retreat starting Friday to Sunday evening; 3 evenings from 8-9 pm wherein points will be highlighted alongside prayer suggestions and opportunities for Q&A

Dates: 6 -8 Aug 2021 (Friday to Sunday)
Time: 8 – 9 pm

Who: More suitable for mature adults and those seeking meaning in the absence of the Holy Eucharist given this pandemic.
Minimum Donation: RM105


Retreat Director: Fr. Alvin Ng Sze Syn, SJ is a Malaysian Jesuit based in Kuching, Sarawak where he heads the local Jesuit community while being engaged with the Ministry to the migrants of the Archdiocese of Kuching as well as with Caritas Malaysia.
