St. Mary of the Lake is offering a Lenten retreat on prayer entitled Praying With America, led by Patrice Halbach and Kathryn Lien. Join us as we explore the archive of articles on prayer written by members and friends of the Society of Jesus and published in America magazine.
The retreat begins the week of February 21, the first week of Lent. There will be two sessions each week, one on Monday evenings from 6:30-7:30 PM and one on Wednesday mornings from 10:00-11:00 AM. Gather virtually with your fellow parishioners as we reflect on the readings we’ve done, build relationships and enrich our own personal prayer. Each week materials will be sent to you to read.
Register by contacting Kathryn Lien at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The tragic death of George Floyd has ignited a public conversation about ongoing racial inequity and injustice in America. How can the Church uphold the dignity of all human persons and foster the common good during these contentious times? What issues do we need to address with our own Church that prevent an appropriate response? The Minnesota Catholic Conference, the public policy voice of the Catholic Church in Minnesota, is hosting this forum for priests, deacons, educators, and lay ecclesial ministers on the memorial of St. Peter Claver to provide an opportunity for formation and reflection on these critical issues in our community, and how we as a Church can respond.
This free online event will take place on Wednesday, September 9, 2020 from 10 AM – Noon. To register, please visit https://www.mncatholic.org/openwideourhearts/.
