Sabbath Moments

Sabbath is an ancient tradition of resting from your labor so that you might remember the gifts of God and reconnect with the Ground of your being.  During this year the theme for Sabbath Moments is "Life Lessons from the Life of Jesus".  If Jesus was "like us in all things but sin" it might be possible to learn important lessons on how we are to live our lives by looking more closely at his life. Each month we will reflect upon a different experience or encounter in the life of Jesus in hopes of gleaning wisdom, insight and direction for our own lives. Join us on the second Saturday of the month where you will be invited to take a break from your normal routine, remember the gifts of God through reflections on a specific theme and reconnect with God via prayer, silence and community.  All are welcome!

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.
