Online Community Offerings and Programs

We are mindful of the close connection and comfort that the center provides to our community, and wish to reinforce that bond in these challenging times. Social distancing can be isolating and strange. While in-person programming is temporarily suspended, we have found new ways to provide listening and discussion through online meeting technology platforms. Using this technology allows a presenter to convene a meeting that you can join through a web link. You can choose to participate using a computer webcam/tablet or by simply calling in on the phone. We invite you to join us in this exciting new venture with your presence and your thoughts! Visit out Events Calendar to view all of our programs.

We would be so grateful if  you could donate to help the center remain open and viable during this challenging year. We  want to continue to offer online programming to meet our community’s needs. Please use this safe, secure link to donate online.

Please note that as of October 1, 2020, you can view all of our online and on-site programs on our Events Calendar

Reading Sunday Scriptures with a Contemplative Spirit, with Gaynell Cronin and Jack Rathschmidt, Fridays at 11:30am

Reading the Sunday Scriptures with a Contemplative Spirit, with Gaynell Cronin and Jack Rathschmidt

Join us each Friday from 11:30 am to noon.

Contemplation, according to Walter Burghardt, S.J., means taking a long, loving look at the real. Utilizing the cultures out of which the bible emerges, we will take a long loving contemplative look at the Sunday scriptures in order both to understand them, and discern how we are called to live them

These sessions are held online, in the Center at Mariandale’s Zoom meeting room. All are welcome! You can join the Zoom visual session from a computer or tablet, or simply phone in.
