Benedictine Conversations

Due to the covid-19 pandemic and the need to ensure the safety of all, we are unable to gather for our usual Benedictine Days series in person at St. Scholastica Monastery. Instead, we invite you to our new, interactive, monthly Zoom gatherings entitled Benedictine Conversations. Each month will feature a guest who will help us explore the Benedictine legacy in our world today!

Presenting our October Benedictine Conversation,

"The Common Good...

Creating Conditions for Everyone to Do Well"

with Dr. Bernie Evans


Tuesday, October 6, 2020
7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Dr. Bernie Evans
Dr. Bernie Evans

Our faith calls us to promote the common good.  Join us as we reflect on how we understand the common good and how we can promote it when faced with a pandemic, protests and elections.

Bernie Evans, Ph.D. is Professor Emeritus from Saint John's University in Collegeville, where he served as Associate Dean in the School of Theology.  Bernie also taught courses on Christian social ethics, environmental theology, and ministry in rural communities.  His publications include Lazarus at the Table:  Catholics and Social Justice as well as Vote Catholic:  Beyond the Political Din?, and Liturgy and Our Lives of Faith.

**There is no fee for Benedictine Conversations, but gifts to support the Center for Spirituality and Enrichment (a ministry of the Sisters of St. Scholastica) are gratefully accepted.
