PLEASE CHECK BACK MID-AUGUST

FOR PROGRAM AND RETREAT INFORMATION

FOR 2018-2019

We here at Shalom Place hope that all of you are safe and well. Programming at Shalom Place is on hiatus for the summer and we will be monitoring closely all the

developments on the COVID-19 front before starting up again.


But we are thinking of you and when this offering from Paraclete Press (see below) came to our attention we thought we would share it with you. These virtual retreats are not free but the rates seem reasonable (though not as reasonable as the Shalom Place one-day retreats) and the presenters and topics are first rate.


Blessings,

The Shalom Place Team

FRIDAY, JUNE 26

Flannery O'Connor in Search of the Province of Joy

Angela Alaimo O’Donnell

During this retreat devoted to the work of Flannery O’Connor, we will consider the challenges she faced in making her pilgrimage as a Christian and as a writer; we will examine passages from her stories, essays, journals, and letters that bear the mark of her extraordinary imagination, her crackling intelligence, and her saving humor; and we will consider the ways in which her voice speaks to us, inspires us, and helps guide us along our own pilgrimages, especially during this moment of great challenge and uncertainty. The retreat offers an invitation to walk alongside one of the most compelling companions we might choose to accompany us on the journey of life.
