In honor of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in the United States, please join us for a virtual walk through both African American Harlem and Spanish Harlem.

We will stop at the places where accomplished women, ranging from iconic to not so familiar, are honored. Stops include named buildings, murals and mosaics, plaques on the sidewalk, and commemorative street corners. And the women range from A’Lelia Walker to Nicholasa Mohr to Zora Neale Hurston. The tour is about 50 minutes with slides and live commentary, followed by Q&A.

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

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
