As many of you know who are familiar with our “two houses, one monastery,” we are continually seeking ways to listen to others who desire more tangible connections in the Salesian way. A new venture was conceived among our Circle of Collaborative Leaders as a way of extending Salesian presence on the North Side of Minneapolis. The St. Jane House provides a welcoming space for groups and individuals to experience for themselves and seek expression in their own lives Salesian Spirituality at work. To learn more about St. Jane House, and to preview upcoming events there, check out the St. Jane House website.
