Due to the COVID-19 Virus, this program is cancelled.
As we grow older, we become more conscious of the new realities that life holds for us. We invite you to come together and grow in community with others who are experiencing the process of aging. In a setting of prayer, peace and beauty we will share what is stirring in us, listen to valuable reflections and enter into prayer that will touch our hearts and spirits. All of this will enrich our later years, offer us wisdom and peace, and help us to become more conscious of God’s presence in all aspects of our lives.
Tuesdays, 10 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
Cost: $30 (includes lunch)

Aging and Mysticism: Thomas Merton
Merton’s remarkable and enduring popularity indicates that he speaks to the minds and hearts of people searching for answers to life questions. He invites people to explore deep places within themselves and offers insights into the paradoxes of life. He wrestles with how to be a contemplative in a world of action – without a quick fix or “Ten Easy Steps to a Successful Spiritual Life.” We will examine what this “modern mystic” has to offer. Presenter: Marie Michele Donnelly, RSM

Aging and Mysticism: Dorothy Day
“Don’t call me a saint! I don’t want to be dismissed so easily.” This quote from Dorothy gives a glimpse into her life and legacy. Dorothy was about a radical movement that was faithful to the Gospel AND the Church. She was immersed in the social issues of the day, with the aim of transforming both individuals and society – until her very last days! What will she inspire in us? Presenter: Mary Anne Nolan, RSM
