The Psalms have long been a major source of prayer for the Jewish and Christian communities alike. Why do they remain so contemporary and relevant?

Presented by Susan Wood, SCL

January 24-February 28, 2024 11:00 am to 12:45 pm, Cost $160. Hybrid delivery (in-person and online via Zoom)

Today’s Christians are called to walk with a wounded world whose culture has become increasingly uncivil and polarized.  Resources drawn from the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, as well as from the Society of Jesus’s reflection on its mission oriented to justice and reconciliation in service of the faith, offer both a path to personal conversion and tools for accompanying our fellow travelers and offering Christ’s healing.

Presented by Adelmo Dunghe, SJ

Mondays, October 2, 16, and 30, 2023, 6:00pm-8:00pm. Cost $80. In-Person Only.

“The hidden figure of crime.” This is how the United Nations describes the 20- to 40-million people who are being held in slavery today. The lesser-known but powerful films in our brief series consider the evils of human trafficking via some popular genres. The Lost Son is a crime drama, while La Sconosciuta takes the form of a thriller. And Once You’re Born… is an adventure full of unexpected twists and turns. These are films, mostly in foreign languages, with English subtitles.
