Weaving together a new heart for intercultural life and mission
Nov. 6 Beatitudes Spotlights New Poetry
Beatitudes is a monthly opportunity to spend an evening in prayer and reflection with the help of beautiful music. The evening begins with a half-hour prayer service using the ecumenical prayer style of the brothers of Taizé. It includes readings, songs, silent reflection and prayers of intercession and adoration. A concert extends the prayer, leading the listener more deeply into the joy, the simplicity, the mercy and the hope of Christian life.
This Wednesday, November 6, the School Sisters of St. Francis’ Music Ministry is delighted to welcome Sister Irene Zimmerman reading her poetry from her new book, Where God is at Home, with Frances Henkel reading the scripture that inspired these poems. Fran will also lead the gathered assembly in songs about Creation and about our respect and care for God’s gift to us.
All are welcome and invited to join our sisters in St. Joseph Chapel at 6 p.m. for this evening of reflection and beauty.
Please wait while we gather your results.
