Contemplative Formation Program: Awakening the Spiritual Heart

This unique 12 month ecumenical, educational and experiential program is for those who desire grounding in God amidst their daily busyness; those who are being called to the richness of silence and the exploration of contemplative practices; and those who long for companioning seekers who are serious about awakening to deeper levels of consciousness.

Haunted by God; The Story of Dorothy Day

A Mariandale Fundraiser
Come out and support your favorite place! Join us on Sunday, October 19th at 3:00 pm for a performance of the acclaimed ninety-minute play, Haunted By God; the Life of Dorothy Day. This dramatic portrait, featuring Chicago’s Still Point Theater’s Lisa Wagner-Carollo, follows Day (1897-1980) from her days as a young Greenwich Village bohemian, through her years as a social activist and journalist, to her later years as an elderly, wise leader. The co-founder of the Catholic Worker in New York and known as the "mother of the peace movement, Day was a faith-filled woman who spent 47 years caring for the poor, challenging the government and leading the Catholic Church to a more active concern for the marginalized. She has been called "the most significant, interesting and influential person in the history of the American Catholic Church." $40 for the performance and refreshments. Reserve your seat now!
