Humility, Hospitality, and the Interconnectedness of all Creation (Zoom)
February 6-8, 2024 | 3 morning sessions, 10:30-11:30 a.m., 3 afternoon sessions 2:30-4:00 p.m. CST
facilitated by S. Judith Sutera and S. Elizabeth Carillo, OSB
Cost: $90 for all 6 sessions
Hospitality, humility, and harmonious living are basic biblical and Benedictine values, but we often don’t comprehend that they must extend beyond the human community in widening circles of concern. We will explore these values through both a monastic and environmental lens, to recognize ourselves as part of the larger community of creation.
Please register by February 2. Once we have received your registration, we will send you an invoice for the retreat. Please know we have scholarships available; if you would like to make a request, email S. Carol Ann at email@example.com. We strongly encourage you to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email contacts to ensure the delivery of emails regarding your retreat.
