Contemporary Dominican Spirituality Seminar


Louis Mary Passeri, O.P. and Scott Steinkerchner, O.P.

Event Date: 

January 31, 2012 - 6:00pm to February 28, 2012 - 8:00pm


Erskine Hall, Catherine of Siena Room

Despite the untimely death of Sr. Catherine Colby, OP, who was going to offer this seminar, we have decided to go ahead with it. Sr. Catherine had chosen some great texts and we would like to use them in her honor.

However, we will have to restructure the course somewhat. Below is the new outline. Once you enroll in the class, you can stop by the Center and pick up the books so that you can read them at your leisure.

This seminar will explore important themes in contemporary spirituality, concetrating on themes that are particularly important to Dominicans and to all who seek to follow God more closely.  See attached bibliography.

A suggested fee is $50. which includes the following books:
  1. The New Wine of Dominican Spirituality by Paul Murray, OP
  2. Falling Upward by Richard Rohr, OFM
  3. Open the Door: A Journey to the True Self, by Joyce Rupp

You can sign up for the seminar below in the "Registration" section and we will contact you.

We will discuss the first two books in the seminar, and we recommend the third book by Joyce Rupp for your Lenten journey.
