Yesterday, Today, & Tomorrow—Celebrating 25 Years of Souljourners

April 26-27, 2024 | Friday, 2:30 p.m. – Saturday, 4:00 p.m. CDT

Cost: $60 for overnight stay accommodations and breakfast. For those staying in a local hotel, or who are only attending on Saturday, there is no charge, however, donations of any amount would be much appreciated.
Come and be a part of the celebration! Souljourners faculty, alumni and current students, will be gathering at Sophia Center, as we joyfully give thanks for 25 wonderful years of our Souljourners ecumenical formation program for spiritual directors. Come Friday and stay over to Saturday, or just come on Saturday. We are excited to feature keynotes by Lucy Abbott Tucker and S. Judith Sutera in addition to providing the opportunity to attend Vespers and supper with the sisters, and reconnect with old friends and make new! We look forward to seeing you and celebrating together.
