"The Grace of the Priesthood"

Spiritual Formation IOCF Silent Preached Retreat directed by Fr. Frederick Miller

Date & Time:

Sunday, July 8, 2018
12:00 AM - 12:00 AM
Sunday, July 8 - Friday, July 13, 2018


Using Scriptural themes, this retreat will explore the sanctifying and helping graces the Lord offers to priests everyday: the grace of conformity to Christ, of prayer, of preaching, of the Eucharist and Reconciliation, of the Good Shepherd. We will also consider how chastity, simplicity of life, and obedience remove obstacles to the powerful graces Christ offers his priests for his people. Registration limited to 20 priests.


Father Frederick Miller, a priest of the Archdiocese of Newark, has spent two decades in seminary work. He has taught systematic theology and spirituality and served as a spiritual director at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Wynnewood, PA,  Mount St. Mary's Seminary in Emmitsburg, MD, and the Pontifical North American College in Rome. He is presently spiritual director of the College Seminary of the Immaculate Conception at Seton Hall University and a member of the adjunct faculty of the major seminary at Seton Hall.
