November Course: Ensuring Steady Growth

A new forthcoming course by the School of Mary will be held this autumn.

What is this course about?

God invites each person to co-operate with Him from the moment they have made the commitment to put Him first in their life and to follow Him in a closer way. This course looks in detail at the practicalities of what this means for both our prayer and daily life in order to ensure our relationship with the Lord steadily grows deeper and richer .

What topics are covered:

            The course focuses on three key areas: 
  • Finding our bearings: understanding how this stage fits within the overall spiritual journey.
  • What it all means: exploring the specific characteristics of this stage and its meaning.
  • Understanding what to expect and how to respond: looking at this stage through the lens of Scripture, the Doctors of the Church and spiritual classics such as The Imitation of Christ. This will help us understand what is happening and the new part we are being invited to play in order to ensure steady growth towards union with Christ, with the help of Mary.

    Where and when will the course be taking place?

    The course will take place at St Mary of the Angels, Moorhouse Road, Bayswater, London, W2 5DJ on Saturday 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th November from 10am to 4:30pm.

    Who will teach the course?

    The course will be taught by Jean Khoury, a theologian who has studied and taught Spiritual Life in the Church for over 20 years. As well as lecturing world-wide on spiritual life and meditation, Jean is the author of several books, articles and studies on spiritual life and the founder of the School of Mary, a 3 level formation in spiritual life ( Jean obtained a degree in Philosophy and a Masters in Spiritual Theology from the Institut Catholique de Toulouse (France) and holds a Licence in Theology from the Teresianum (Rome). He is currently completing his PhD in Spiritual Theology at the Angelicum (Rome) with Monsignor François-Marie Léthel. Jean is based in the Archdiocese of Westminster, London, UK.

    How much will the course cost?

    The cost for the course is £25 per day / £100 for the full course. As the venue has limited capacity and we expect demand to be very high, participants will need to register and pay a deposit of £50 in advance with the remaining balance to be paid on 7th November.
