10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

McCabe Renewal Center

Join us for ten Tuesday mornings with Father Thomas Keating and Father Carl Arico using the DVD series The Gift of Life: Death & Dying, Life & Living.  During four days of filming in December of 2010, Fr. Thomas sat with Fr. Carl in a conversation focused on the process of death and dying as part of, rather than the end of, life's journey.  We will begin each session with a 20-minute centering prayer sit, view the day's segment, and discuss its meaning in our lives.  All are welcome!

Facilitators: Lezlie Oachs, a retired St. Scholastica faculty member, has been a practitioner of Centering Prayer since 1996 and is a commissioned Centering Prayer teacher through Contemplative Outreach.  Judy Russell taught at risk youth for nearly thirty years in Minneapolis and St. Paul.  A longtime Centering Prayer practitioner, she has been a commissioned teacher through Contemplative Outreach since 2013.  Pat Winkelman retired from Essentia Health in 2007 and has been a practitioner of Centering Prayer since 2013.  She is currently getting her certification as a Contemplative Outreach teacher.

Cost: $5 per session or $50 for all sessions.
