Pre-Convocation: Inspirational Women in the Church: Lessons for the Heart, Mind, and Soul

Pre-Convocation: Inspirational Women in the Church: Lessons for the Heart, Mind, and Soul

Pre-Convocation Workshop


Inspiration Pre-Convocation Workshop on November 3, 2022

This workshop will explore the writings of St. Hildegard of  Bingen, Julian of Norwich, Teresa of Avila, and Benedictine Sr. Joan Chittister. Their simple practices illustrate how they experienced God in their vocation,  encouraging habits of the heart and soul. Their daily practices are replete with wisdom, and can nourish our ministries, as well as our physical and mental well-being. Anne will share the neuroscience and positive psychological benefits behind these practices, which are great motivators for incorporating them into our daily lives and sharing them with others. Finally, Anne and workshop participants will explore ideas on how to use their inspirational practices and quotes to invite women and men to discern their vocation.
