Jesus And The Women Of The Gospels:
Traveling Together On The Path Of Discipleship


Director: Sr. Wendy Cotter, CSJ

 


Sunday, July 14, 5:30PM—Friday, July 19, 9:00AM


This retreat focuses on the significance of Jesus’ encounters with women in various accounts of the gospels, as well as when they are featured in Jesus’ parables and wisdom sayings. The retreat will conclude with the special place women disciples hold in the Resurrection narratives, their mandate to proclaim Him as risen, and what this holds for our role today!

 

Sr. Wendy Cotter, CSJ, PhD is a Sister of St. Joseph from London, Ontario, Canada, and also an American citizen. She has been a full professor of New Testament in the Theology Department of Loyola University, and is now Emerita since her retirement in 2016. She began teaching in elementary schools.

She has published two books, The Miracles in Greco Roman Antiquity (1999), and The Christ of the Miracle Stories: Portrait Through Encounter (2010).

Centering Prayer


Facilitator: Marilyn Dansart

 

centering


Mondays, 7:00PM-8:00PM,
July 15,

no August meeting, resumes in September


Monthly Centering Prayer gatherings at Shalom begin with 20 minutes of quiet, wordless prayer together. We then read together a short piece related to contemplative prayer, contemplative worship, or other topics on contemplative living, which is followed with time to share our thoughts and reflections regarding the reading. Centering Prayer is much more about what God can do in us than what we can do for God. Centering Prayer calls us to a spirit of openness and receptivity to God. Newcomers to the Centering Prayer Group are always welcome.

TaizE Prayer


Musicians:
Jim Brimeyer, Sr. Carol Hemesath OSF, Sr. Marie Therese Kalb OSF, & Monthly Guests

 

taize


Thursdays, 7:00PM-8:00PM,
resumes in September,

no July or August meetings


A characteristic trait of Taizé Prayer is the use of repetitive prayers set to simple musical lines. Repetition is not a new phenomenon nor unique to Taizé. The use of repetitive prayer has a long history in Christian spirituality and liturgy (think: the Rosary). What is unique to Taizé Prayer is the adaptation of the repeated form to simple musical lines and gospel texts that can be sung. Those assembled are to immerse themselves in the simple but profound harmonies, letting themselves be carried by sung prayer.

 

Another characteristic trait of Taizé Prayer worship is its use of silence, a very important dimension. The use of silence in Taizé reminds us to incorporate more silence into our daily worship rather than filling every moment with words or music.
