Join us on November 7 for the Tuesday Tabletalk: Healing Steps on the Journey from Patriarchy. Across faith traditions and vocations, women continually face inequalities and injustices perpetuated by systemic patriarchy.

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. – Martin Luther King, Jr.

Join us for Advent Icon Retreat: Mary, Bearer of Light. For followers of Christ, Advent is a season of preparation for the arrival of holy peace, perfect love, and true compassion to light up our hearts with spiritual joy. Sacred icons are images of those whose hearts were on fire with this joy. These images reflect God’s love.

Mary’s light is like that of the moon,
totally reflected from the sun, the Son of God.
– Peter Kreeft
