The Feast of Mary Magdalene

Saturday, July 22
7:30 - 9:00 am
Morning Prayer on the Labyrinth

Meet on the outdoor labyrinth on the west side of Carondelet Center

Dr. He QiAlmost from the beginning, tradition silences Mary Magdalene, the apostle to the apostles.  The Easter Sunday gospel reading still omits her encounter with the risen Jesus in the garden and announcement to the disciples, "I have seen the Lord."  Many interpreters and artists turn her into a seductress and penitent, yet many remember with the gospel accounts that she is the first witness of the resurrection.  Pope Francis has raised her feast to a solemnity to honor her and all women. 

Come gather in ritual, song and prayer as we celebrate Mary Magdalene, and lay claim to a discipleship of equals in the church today.

EARLY BIRD SPECIAL through July 21!

In these challenging times, we are often called upon to speak up, show up and live our values more boldly. But it can be difficult to muster the courage to do this. What might we learn from ancient teachings and practices that inspire this understanding, helping us to live more courageously, with greater vulnerability and strength today?

Join author Karen Hering and Qigong teacher Lisa Schlingerman as they lead participants in guided writing, small group conversation, Qigong, Chinese calligraphy (no experience needed!) and other activities both playful and contemplative to help us access the wisdom and courage found in our own lives and bodies.
