Holy Week Retreat for Women
Walking with Our Lord and His Cross Towards the Resurrection
Fr. Maher, SJ
Using insights from St. Ignatius, Fr. Maher will provide retreatants with a solid preparation for the Easter celebration, while at the same time deepening their spiritual perspective to grow throughout the continuing Church year.
Father Michael Maher, SJ
Born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Michael Maher entered the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) in 1975. Fr. Maher followed a typical course of Jesuit formation that included humanities, philosophy and theology interspersed with various teaching assignments which included teaching 7th and 8th grade science to Native Americans in Pine Ridge, South Dakota, English at Sogong University in Korea, religion to boys in Omaha, Nebraska as well as teaching positions at Marquette University and Saint Louis University.
A few years after ordination, he began doctoral studies at the University of Minnesota majoring in early modern European history with additional studies in Chinese History. Fr. Maher has co-edited a book on confraternities and written several articles and book chapters dealing with the implementation and influence of Jesuit practices on various groups. In recognition of his scholarship, Fr. Kolvenbach, then superior general of the Jesuits, appointed Fr. Maher to the Jesuit Historical Institute. Fr. Maher holds this membership in addition to his current position as associate professor of History at Gonzaga University as well as chair of the department of History and the Director of Catholic Studies.
