Saturday, October 17 9:30 am - 12:30 pm Compelling Questions in John’s Gospel for Us Today - Visitation

“Compelling Questions in John’s Gospel for Us Today” will be facilitated by Mary Ellen Sheehan, IHM, STD.

John’s Gospel stands in marked contrast to the Gospels of Mark, Matthew and Luke. Its use of literary forms, such as dramatic narratives, discursive monologues and rhetorical questions, draws us into a deep experience of disclosure and intimacy with God. How do we grow into more loving surrender, practical love and wisdom? This workshop will set forth some central literary features of the Gospel and engage us in spiritually nourishing reflections.

Saturday, October 31 9:30 am - 12:30 pm Helen Prejean: Death Penalty Prophet - Visitation

“Helen Prejean: Death Penalty Prophet” will be facilitated by Kathie Budesky, IHM, MA.

After witnessing the electrocution of a condemned man in a Louisiana prison, Helen Prejean, CSJ, wrote the bestselling Dead Man Walking and set out to bring citizens close to the hard realities of capital punishment. Her mission has taken her to 50 states and to the Vatican, where her personal entreaties to two popes helped shape Catholic opposition to the death penalty. We will take a look at her life and her work, her evolution from a woman who prayed for God to solve the world’s problems to one who immersed herself in the struggle of poor people forced to live on the margins of society.
