John, also the new pastor at San Gabriel Mission, one the archdiocese’s most historic and largest parishes, will provide opening remarks on Catholicism in America today, then dialogue with the audience on trends, issues, and possible solutions.

A reception, to continue the dialogue, will follow Fr. John’s presentation.  The talk is open to all at no charge, but reservations are requested.  Please all Fr.

"Psychological and Spiritual Pitfalls and Possibilities on the Contemplative Path" A Workshop with Br. Bede Healey.  Saturday, October 5, 9a-2p at LMU University Hall.  We will explore from a psychological and spiritual perspective how to tenderly and compassionately care for our wayward ways and our recalcitrant parts, those aspects of us which are afraid of moving forward into the unknown. We are not on this journey alone, and over time we can surrender those lofty ideals we hold of who we need to become, and accept the invitation to love ourselves as we are, as God knows and loves us.

"Religion, Race, and Scandal: How do we sustain Faith?" An African American Ministry Forum with Dr. LaReine-Marie Mosely, S.N.D.  Saturday, October 26, 9a-12:30p at LMU University Hall.  This event will be an opportunity to reflect on the church and faith in light of current challenging times. Our invited speaker, Sr. Lareine-Marie Mosely and Dr. Kim Harris will lead an interactive discussion on how the church is challenged in dealing with intense social changes that we are living with now. We will consider and discuss how the church is sustaining the faithful or lagging behind in important social issues such as race, immigration and the clergy sex abuse scandals.

https://cal.lmu.edu/event/lmux191026



"'So Longs the Heart:' Cultivating a Heart Open to the Divine" A Workshop with Dr. Wendy Wright.  Saturday, November 9, 9a-2:30p at LMU University Hall.  This day long presentation will explore the classic tradition of Salesian spirituality that first emerged in the seventeenth century for insights that might enrich contemporary contemplative practice. That tradition is noted for its human wisdom, theological optimism, emphasis on relationality, and its applicability to persons in all circumstances of life. What characterizes that tradition in the many ways it has found expression is the emphasis on a transformed heart.

Transformation for A New Creation: Teilhard de Chardin and Beatrice Bruteau
Rev. Stephen Coffey, OSB Cam

7:00pm Friday, October 25 to 1:30pm Sunday, October 27

This weekend retreat will explore the mysticism of two of the 20th century’s profound spiritual mentors: French Jesuit scientist Teilhard de Chardin, and the American philosopher and contemplative practitioner Beatrice Bruteau. Whereas Teilhard saw the grand cosmic scheme of Christ in evolution, Beatrice developed an understanding of the human person in evolution. She invites us to participate in the divine ecstasy that leads to both personal transformation and a new creation. Stephen Coffey is a monk of the Camaldolese Benedictine Congregation engaged in ministries of spiritual direction, retreats, and adult faith formation. He lives at the Monastery of the Risen Christ in San Luis Obispo. Reading Beatrice Bruteau’s The Holy Thursday Revolution before the retreat is helpful but not necessary. Cost: per person/shared $240; single $340; commuter $150
