Mindful Practices for a Better World

As the presenter and facilitator of the May 19 workshop, “Mindfulness for Today’s World: Preparing for Peace,” Mary Evangelista has the passion and the spiritual background to bring us to the loving conclusion that justice and peace are possible. Wholeness in relationships, both among acquaintances and strangers, comes about when individuals are joyous and unfettered by worries.

From 9 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. in St. Joseph Hall, Mary will offer a guided meditation that will help participants work toward a state of wholeness and re-enliven our drive to establish a future in which everyone has at least their most basic needs met. There will be a chance to express ourselves through small discussion circles and group mandalas, and to learn of the ingenious ways a few people are making a big difference. Everyone is invited to join, no matter where their spiritual journeys have taken them so far.

The fee is $15, and advance registration is strongly recommended to ensure there are enough materials for everyone. Please reserve your place today by calling Donna O’Loughlin at 414-385-5272 or email doloughlin@sssf.org.
