Sr. Mary Virginia Schmidt

The speakers for this first week are Sr. Mary Virginia Schmidt, who was the chairperson for the committee responsible for the booklet, Justice Shall Flourish, which will be used as a resource for the Monday night presentations. Brenda Lisenby, who is finishing her year-long Monastic Immersion Experience with us, will be co-presenter for the evening.  Brenda will be bringing Pope Francis’s encyclical Laudato Si into the discussion, particularly some views on caring for our planet. This first session of the Series will also include meeting new friends, touching base with people we haven’t seen for the summer and planning our participation for the coming months.

The sisters will provide the entire meal for our first meeting and we will sign up to bring items for the next months.  Supper will be at 6pm and our ending time will be 8:30 pm.  This includes Night Prayer after the Presentations.

Plan to attend whatever parts of the evenings you can.
We look forward to welcoming you to this time of Salesian study and community fellowship.
Sincerely,
Sr. Suzanne for the Sisters
