Date/Time Event
Monday, May 16 - Sunday, July 10 10:30 am - 4:30 pm 2020s Vision Art Exhibit

The Monroe County Community College (MCCC) art club is ecstatic to present its show, live and in person, with an optimistic look to the future in a wide variety of subjects, styles and mediums. The art club is a student-led organization that aims to create a space for young artists to connect, find opportunities and hone their creative talents. The name “2020s Visions” is a double entendre, referring to the common saying “20/20 vision,” and the new decade we are entering. Attendees must wear masks, enter through the A-wing entrance and sign in for contact tracing. The exhibit is free and open to the public by appointment only (please give 48 hours’ notice). Monday through Friday from 10:30 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. For more information about the exhibit and admission, email econner@ihmsisters.org.

There will be an opening reception in the Gallery on Friday, June 10, 6:00 -7:30 p.m.

Take time away and enter the quiet with a silent, directed retreat.

Enjoy the quiet and beauty of our spirituality center and the land surrounding it.

For the safety of all participants, COVID-19 protocols are in place and are consistent with the guidance of the CDC and the Michigan Department of Health.

Tuesday, June 14 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm Listening to the in-between spaces

Have you ever gone on a trip and drove for miles without seeing any landmarks or signs or gas stations? It can be unnerving, but we persevere, trusting in a destination we cannot yet see. Our spiritual journey may be like that where we find ourselves “in-between”; we’ve moved away from something familiar and haven’t quite reached the new space. The unknown territory can be uncomfortable but also filled with potential. How can we better understand the in-between spaces of our life? What approaches and skills can help us reorient and move through these spaces? Our explorations will take us into spirituality, the in-between spaces experienced by Jesus of Nazareth and the “borderland” writings of Chicana writer Gloria Anzaldúa.

Julie Vieira, IHM, MA, (she/her) is a writer, presenter and thinker in spirituality with particular attentiveness to living the darkness and light — the poetry and rough prose — of everyday life. She serves as the Director of IHM Spirituality Ministries.

Registration Deadline: June 11, 2022
Suggested Donation: $15
