Peacemaking from the Monastery
Aug 27, 2017 at 6:30 PM
Organizer: Nick Pickrell

Thomas Merton, the Trappist monk, deeply cared for those affected by war, poverty, and marginalization.  From the walls of his monastery, he influenced a generation of Christians to walk alongside the poor while maintaining one’s inner life through practices like solitude.  Sr. Therese Elias, OSB, will offer her reflections on Thomas Merton’s life and spiritual practices, from solitude to solidarity.  We will be having a rice bowl buffet that night, so bring any toppings, side dishes, or desserts you can share!
