Fr. Mark Dean, OMI Saturday Presenter:  Fr. Mark Dean, OMI

As the disciples walked along the road to Emmaus (cf. Lk 24:13f), they were joined by a stranger who opened for them a completely new understanding of scriptures well-known to them.

Father Mark would like to share with you how, with the help of Fr. James Alison (perhaps a stranger to you), he has come to see the Scriptures in a new light…a light whose source is the Risen Christ.  We will first look at a way of understanding ourselves and how this self-understanding impacts our understanding of God.  Then we will look at some well-known parables and see how they may point us in a direction we had not anticipated – when seen through the heart of Jesus, the Forgiving Victim.

Father Mark Dean, a Missionary Oblate of Mary Immaculate, is currently on staff at King’s House Retreat and Renewal Center in Belleville, IL.  Previously he has (among a variety of assignments) served as a formator to Oblate seminarians, pastor to Sweden’s northern-most parish, and chaplain to both university students and men incarcerated.

Please join us for a day of reflection as we explore a new look at the Scriptures.
Price:  $70 (includes lunch and dinner)
