Coffee with the Mystics

December 13, 2020 at 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST



Open for registration.

Karl Rahner once said: “The Christian of the future will be a mystic or she or he will not exist at all.”

The brokenness of our world invites us into probing the meaning of what ordinary mysticism looks like in the unnamable present day, especially in light of world events. This series will do so by exploring the thoughts and lives of some of the most well known mystics of the past.

Join us on the second Sunday of September, October, November and December from 1-3 p.m. (Eastern time) You have an option to join us virtually or in-person.

September 13: “The Little Flower”, St. Therese of Lisieux presented by Sister Cathy Campbell, SP.
October 11: St. Catherine of Siena by Sister Jan Craven, SP
November 8: Brother David Steidle-Rast by Sister Jan Craven, SP
December 13: Jalal ad-Din Rumi by Sister Paula Damiano, SP

Cost is $10 per person or $35 when you register for all four sessions.
Please register one week prior to date of each session.

If you choose to attend virtually, we will share the link for you to join us once registered.

If you would like to register for in-person registration, it will be first come first served and there will be a limit of 10 people per session.
