From Conflict to Communion: 500 Years of Christian Reform

$10 - $40

In the 500 years since the Reformation that rocked Christianity to its very core, rich faith traditions have risen from the divide. Rather than seeing this as the anniversary the dissolution of Western Christianity, we are celebrating the groundswell of calls for Christian Unity. We may now have different traditions of worship, but we are all still called to live the same Gospel values. Rather than remaining divided along ideological lines of the past, we seek the unification of living…

We hear Pope Francis calling for a renewed Church, for a new evangelization. We read statistics about the increasing number of “nones” – people who do not affiliate with any religion. We witness our teens and young adults leaving the Church in record numbers after Confirmation. In some dioceses, many parishes have closed and the remaining churches often have empty pews. Is Ezekiel’s vision of “dry bones” an image for our future? (Ez. 37:4) What can we do? In this…

Intimate Faith: Leaning into Infinite Love in Darkness as Well as Light

An event every week that begins at 9:30am on Tuesday, repeating until March 13, 2018

$20

Light and darkness are familiar themes in Christian spirituality. Though we tend to prefer one over the other, they are a package deal. When we pull them apart, as we so often try to do, we end up distorting the nature and gift of God’s infinite love, which manifests through them both. Lent is a time when darkness and light meet in a particularly startling fashion. This 4-week series invites participants to prepare for Lent by focusing on four distinct…

5th Annual International Retreat with Rev. Ron Rolheiser, OMI https://youtu.be/qcr9w2Bfgd0 Today, thanks to better health practices and contemporary medicine most of us can delay much longer both the debilitations of aging and the onset of death, but that leaves us with the question: How should we live out these latter years? Is there a second generativity beyond that of our young and middle years?  We are in dire need of spirituality for both our latter years and for how we…

Los místicos dan respuesta a algunas de las preguntas perenes de nuestra existencia. ¿Quién soy Yo? y ¿Quién es Dios?
