Sieger Köder art retreat: Malta

Sieger Köder
Sieger Köder

 Retreat in Malta inspired by the art of Sieger Köder

Led by Magdalen Lawler SND and Tom McGuinness SJ, this 5-day retreat will draw on some of the beautiful and challenging paintings by the priest and artist Sieger Köder. The latter produced many evocative images that show Christ as a light at the centre of our lives, dispelling fear. Köder uses images from Scripture and daily life to show that we can find God in everything – if only we have eyes to see!

Magdalen and Tom have worked together over many years to offer retreats, weaving together scripture, art, poetry and song.

The retreat will be conducted in English and is open to all who would value a retreat on this historic island to reflect on the presence of God in their lives. It will be held in an atmosphere of quiet with some input to help personal prayer. There will be time to share and opportunities to meet individually with the Retreat Leaders.
