School of Discernment [Online]
Friday, December 4, 10am - Sunday, December 6, 10am
Kathleen Cahalan, Sr. Virginia Matter, OSB, and Samuel Rahberg
The School of Discernment is an opportunity to discern the voice of the Holy Spirit under the guidance of skilled teachers and listeners and with the benefit of wisdom from the monastic tradition, now available online. The framework includes sessions on the practice of discernment, reflection questions for quiet time, and one-on-one meetings with a spiritual director, all via Zoom.
No one will be obligated to share publicly about the particulars of their own stories, but each will have the opportunity to do so as they choose. Spiritual directors will be available to assist with the process of discernment and any questions and insights as they arise.
Maranatha! Come Lord Jesus [Online]
Tuesday, December 1 7:00-9:00pm
Fr. Michael Joncas
The liturgical season of Advent in the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite has two distinct foci: the mystery of the coming of Christ at the end of history (Parousia) and the mystery of the coming of Christ in history (Christmas). We will explore how these foci are expressed in the lectionary readings and hymns of the day for the Sundays of Advent of Year B as well as Advent texts, ceremonies and customs from Advent in other rites. Immersion in these texts and rites should help us develop Advental spirituality, living in the tension between already and not yet. This event will take place online via Zoom .Register online.
