Connecting Soul to Role

Tell me what it is you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

                                                                            -Mary Oliver

Throughout our lives there are two vital questions that bubble to the surface of our awareness, especially during times of hope, change, chaos or distress.  They are: "Who am I?" and "What is my purpose?"  You might be a young adult just starting out, a middle aged empty-nester or a freshly minted retiree, it doesn't matter. We each seek our own answers.  Using poetry, input, quiet reflection and group sharing you will be invited to explore what is your fundamental identity, primary purpose and how you, specifically can best live your life from these truths.

Date & Time: Wednesdays in June (June 5, 12,19 and 26) from 7pm-8:30pm

Facilitator: Ginny Schaeffer

Location: Ursuline Motherhouse, 3115 Lexington Road. Please enter at the Handicapp Access entrance at the rear of the building.

Angela's Room: A Hermitage in the City

Do you yearn for a place where you can sink into solitude and enter into silence, the first language of God?

Are you looking for a space where you can get away to reflect and pray?

The good news is that you don't have to travel miles and miles to find a place of quiet where you can relax, step out of the hectic pace of your life and allow yourself the luxury of stillness and prayer. The Ursuline Sisters offer a self-contained apartment (living room, kitchen, bath, bedroom) that is attached to the rear of the Ursuline Motherhouse and has its own entrance as a hermitage in the city.  You will find a CD player, relaxing CD's, art material and several books in this sacred space.

The spacious grounds of the Ursuline Campus are also available for a place to walk, reflect and appreciate nature. They only ask that you visit with a desire for retreat and prayer, and that the space be treated with reverence and respect.

Reservations are accepted on a first come/first served basis. Please contact Janet Sauer at (502) 544-8993 or [email protected] for more information and reservations.
