Bible Contemplation Days

Every year, we engage with a consistent biblical theme during four "Bible Contemplation Days" (four Saturdays, 10:00 - 17:00). The start of our next annual series is still to be determined. It will deal with the Gospel of John. The goal is always to interpret the biblical texts as impulses for our faith today.

Elements: Exegetical and spiritual impulses, silence, brief exchanges, devotion, prayer

Jesuit Forum

The Jesuit Forum at Michaelssaal offers a platform for theological and spiritual impulses on one hand, for questions of our time in the broadest sense on the other. The evening starts with an expert lecture of about 50 minutes' length. After that there is about half an hour for open discussions and exchanges on the respective topic. We always end within the set timeframe (7:30 p.m to 9:00 p.m.).


Meditation & Contemplation

Contemplative prayer is a particular method of Christian – especially Ignatian – prayer. It focuses on the immediate dialogical relationship between the praying person and God, shaped by orientation towards Jesus Christ, "the way and the truth and the life" (John 14:6).


Bible Study Group

Together we read the Bible and delve deeper into a passage, listening to what that text has to tell us today.
