Tom McGuinness SJ is a former director of St Beuno’s Spirituality Centre and of the Ignatian Spirituality Centre in Glasgow. He is currently a member of the Jesuit Final Formation Team based at Manresa Jesuit Centre of Spirituality in Dublin. Tom has written and recorded many reflection songs for prayer, which will be part of this retreat.
