Saturday, March 11 9:30 am - 12:30 pm Visitation North - Celtic Spirituality: Finding God in Primroses, Poetry and Pubs

“Celtic Spirituality: Finding God in Primroses, Poetry and Pubs” is facilitated by Mary Ellen Sheehan, IHM, STD. Long ago, when the first preachers of the Jesus’ message arrived in Ireland, they found tribal people who were steeped in nature, lovers of sacred places and soul-sourced storytellers. What happened to the Christian proclamation when it engaged this Celtic culture and what happened to Celtic narrative when it met the Christian story? This workshop will focus on visual nature imagery, poetry, and community as a way into Celtic Spirituality.

Suggested offering is $25. Contact Visitation North at 248-433-0950 or visitationnorth@ihmsisters.org to register. Please note that Visitation North is not handicapped-accessible.

Saturday, March 25 9:30 am - 12:30 pm Visitation North - Roses in December: The American Martyrs of El Salvador

“Roses in December: The American Martyrs of El Salvador” is facilitated by Kathie Budesky, IHM, MA. In many ways, Maura Clarke, Ita Ford, Dorothy Kazel and Jean Donovan were typical of many young American Catholic women raised in the post-World War II era. Unlike others, their response to the teachings of Jesus led them not only to serve the poor in Latin America, but to their martyrdom. This look at their life stories will include presentations, the award-winning documentary, Roses in December, and an exploration of their writings.

This is the first of three presentations in the “Great Women Series.” Others include “Coretta Scott King: A Woman of Grace” (April 8, 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.) and “Mary Magdalene: History and Tradition” (April 22, 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.).
