Spiritual Book Sharing

Spiritual Book Sharing - Upcoming Events

Tuesday's

Join us in our Spring Spiritual Book Sharing with Ilia Delio's Making All Things New: Catholicity, Cosmology and Consciousness. This book is a beautiful pairing with Pope Francis' recently released encyclical, Laudato Si.

As Delio demonstrates, catholicity is a conscious awareness of how everything- sun and stars, maple trees and muddy rivers, and all organisms from the single form one thing. It is a dynamic, spiritual quality that quite literally means "becoming whole." Catholicity is an inner principle which first burst forth in the life of Jesus, and has the power to reconnect all the demensions of life; spirituality, religion, the new sciences, culture, and society. Sister Ilia fully describes this unitive principle which is being expressed by Pope Francis in his recent encyclical, Laudato Si.

Ilia Delio, OSF, is Director of the Catholic Studies Program and Visiting Professor at Georgetown University. She holds doctorates in pharmacology from the New Jersey Medical School/School of Biomedical Sciences, and in historical theology from Fordham University. She is the recipient of a prestigious Templeton Course in Science and Religion award. Her books include Christ in Evolution, Care for Creation, The Emergent Christ, and The Unbearable Wholeness of Being, all Catholic Press Association Book Award winners. She is also editor of From Teilhard to Omega: Co-creating an Unfinished Universe.

Fee: $50 (Includes books and materials)

KNOWING GOD'S WILL: The Practice of Discernment
On Saturday, March 19 , Fr. Albert Haase OFM returns to Rosaryville for the second year in a row to present another workshop on the spiritual life. This year he will focus on the thorny, challenging, and often-misunderstood topic of discerning God’s will in our lives. How can we hear the voice of God in our lives? How do we know if this is really coming from God and not from ourselves—or the evil one? Are there attitudes and practices that help us become more deeply aware of God’s call in our lives? Based upon his latest book and DVD by Paraclete Press, this day promises to offer stimulating presentations and discussions.

Ordained a Franciscan priest in 1983, Albert Haase, OFM, is a popular preacher, teacher, spiritual director and radio personality. A former missionary to mainland China for over eleven years, he is the author of nine books on popular spirituality and the presenter on four bestselling DVDs.

Centering Prayer Retreat

Centering Prayer Retreat - Upcoming Events

Contemplative Outreach of New Orleans

Presents a LECTIO DIVINA AND CENTERING PRAYER RETREAT

Contemplative Outreach of New Orleans is pleased to offer a very special retreat, providing an opportunity to deepen the practice of Lectio Divina and Centering Prayer in an atmosphere of quiet and community support.

Centering Prayer helps us let go of over-conceptualization, hyperactivity, and over-dependence on self. This means that when we experience Lectio Divina we are more open to take in the Scripture at a different level, and rely more on God. Lectio Divina reminds us that our Centering Prayer is relational, and we are entering into a deeper relation with our God, who is already deeply in love with us.

—Fr. Carl Arico

This retreat is geared to participants who have an established daily Centering Prayer or other meditative practice. Beginners are welcome with the knowledge that the retreat atmosphere will be one of profound silence and community support, in order to allow participants to deepen their reservoir of interior silence and stillness.

Join us in this beautiful countryside setting to renew your body, mind and spirit.

FEES AND SCHEDULE

The retreat fee is $495, inclusive of accommodations and meals. A $200 deposit is required by June 26, 2016.

$250 commuter fee.

This retreat will begin the afternoon of Friday, July 29, 2016, with check-in from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Dinner will be at 6:00 p.m., and the opening presentation will begin at 7:00 p.m. The retreat will conclude Wednesday, August 3 , 2016, after breakfast.

If you have any special requirements, please let us know by June 26, 2016.

Becoming a Wounded Healer

Becoming a Wounded Healer - Upcoming Events

Father Matt Linn, SJ

November 4-6, 2016


The second half of life is to transform our wounds into the gifts of a wounded healer creating a better world for the next generation. This happens as we forgive and let go of the pain of our hurts while receiving new gifts of compassion and wisdom from our wounds to become a wounded healer. The deeper the wound, the greater is the possibility for new gifts of the Spirit. This weekend will allow time for wounds to heal where we feel we have been hurt by others, our own mistakes, and even God. We will then become gifted wounded healers. Even though Oliver Wendell Holmes said, “Most people die with their music still inside them,” we will be wounded healers singing now and forever our unique life-giving song.

Fr. Matthew Linn, SJ has focused on integrating physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. He is a member of the Association of Christian Therapists with advanced graduate degrees in sociology, anthropology, spirituality, and theology. Since 1970 he has given courses and retreats in over 60 countries from Alaska to Australia. Ordained in l973 he currently lives in a Jesuit community in Minneapolis where he trains spiritual directors at Sacred Ground and serves on the editorial board of Presence: An International Journal of Spiritual Direction. Matt, along with his partners Dennis and Sheila have written 22 books translated in over 20 languages and with over a million copies in English.
