Sessions will be held at 10 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Registration fee is $50 and includes lunch. Contact River House at 734-240-5494 or riverhouse@ihmsisters.org.

Thursday, March 1 - Thursday, March 15 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm Why the Cross?

Thursdays, March 1-15, Mary Ann Flanagan, IHM, PhD, presents “Why the Cross?” This challenging question begs for an answer. Why did the innocent Jesus die such a brutal death? Why do so many innocent ones suffer? How does faith in a God of love and compassion square with the reality of such suffering? Participants will try to enter into the mystery of these questions.

The registration fee is $30. To register, contact River House at 734-240-5494 or riverhouse@ihmsisters.org. Please note that River House is not handicapped-accessible.

Sunday, March 4 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm Visitation North - Finding God in the Dark Film Series

Entertaining Angels: The Dorothy Day Story

Dorothy Day is not your conventional saint. She lived hard, made mistakes and endured the consequences. But the unquenchable fire burning within her cannot be contained. She wants to make a difference. During the Depression, she vowed to house the homeless, feed the hungry, and care for the sick; her total finances amounted to 97 cents. Yet she persisted, frequently walking on stormy waters of faith. Popular stars and important themes combine in this compelling true story of the “American Mother Teresa.” Martin Sheen, Melinda Dillon and Brian Keith join Moira Kelly as Day in this moving saga of a faith not just believed, but lived.

Free-will offering. Please note that Visitation North is not handicapped-accessible.
