Finding the Sky Within You: Lessons from Thomas Merton @ Spiritual Renewal Center

May 10 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join us for this presentation by Dr. Monica Weis, internationally known Merton scholar. Beginning with an overview of Thomas Merton’s life, she’ll explore how nature influenced Merton’s prayer and spirituality, including quotes from his journals. In the second half, we’ll shift to examine Merton’s commitment to solitude, his fascination with St. Brendan’s Voyage, and his challenge to us to value solitude as part of our own spiritual journey. The evening will include time for personal reflection and interactive discussion.

Dr. Monica Weis SSJ, professor emerita of English, taught at Nazareth College in Rochester and was a Fulbright Visiting Scholar in Hungary. She is a frequent national and international presenter on Thomas Merton and author of Thomas Merton’s Gethsemani: Landscapes of Paradise (2005), The Environmental Vision of Thomas Merton (2011) and Thomas Merton and the Celts (2016).

Meeting Christ in Prayer Wednesdays @ Spiritual Renewal Center

May 16 @ 10:30 am – 11:45 am

Sr. Marise May, OSF, D.Min

If you are interested in deepening your relationship with Christ, particularly through prayer, join Franciscan sisters and staff Spiritual Director Marise May (Wednesday mornings) for this 8-week program. The focus of this course is on praying daily with scripture texts and meeting weekly for faith sharing with a small group of like-hearted people. Each week also includes guided meditation and preparation for the coming week’s prayer time.

We will use a handbook based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola.  If you’ve thought about doing the Spiritual Exercises but haven’t been able to devote the 30 weeks needed—or if you have completed the Exercises, and would like to revisit some of those approaches to prayer—this course is for you.

The deadline for registering is May 14; sign up now, as space is limited!
