Celtic SpiritualityMary Ellen Sheehan, IHM, STD

Saturday, March 10, 9:30am-12:30pm

Suggeted Offering: $25

 

Long ago, when the first preachers of the Jesus' message arrived in Ireland, they found tribal people who were steeped in nature, lovers of communal sacred places, and soul-sourced storytellers. What happened to the Christian proclamation when it engaged this Celtic culture and what happened to Celtic narrative when it met the Christian story?  This workshop will focus on visual nature imagery, poetry, and community as a way into Celtic mystical awareness and commitment to care for the community. Can we make any connections with searching for wholeness today?
