An upcoming weekend retreat will focus on how active ministry can draw on the wisdom of mystics.
Barbara Hughes, author of “Ministry and the Mystical Path,” will lead the conference, which will take place Nov. 9-11 at the Mother Boniface Spirituality Center in Northeast Philadelphia.
Hughes has written more than 600 articles on spiritual life based on decades of pastoral experience at both parish and diocesan levels. She currently authors a daily column on spirituality entitled “In Light of Faith,” which has appeared in The Catholic Virginian since 2000. A secular Carmelite, wife, mother of 5 children and a grandmother, she continues to lecture on spirituality, contemplative prayer and inter-religious dialogue.
Novices, veterans, professionals and volunteers, whether lay, ordained or religious, are all welcome.
The retreat will begin on Friday, Nov. 9, at 7 p.m. and end on Sunday, Nov. 11 at 2 p.m. The overnight fee is $170, which includes a $40 non-refundable deposit. The commuter fee is $85, which includes a $25 non-refundable deposit. The deadline for registration is Oct. 31, 2018.
For more information, 267-350-1831 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registrations should be mailed to the Mother Boniface Spirituality Center, 3501 Solly Avenue, Philadelphia, PA, 19136.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
