Last Seminar of 2015 for Consecrated men and women.
September 11th - 13th, 2015
Title: Revisioning Religious Life for the 21st Century
Director: Fr. Diarmuid O'Murchu, a member of the Sacred Heart Missionary Order, is a social psychologist. As a workshop leader and group facilitator he has worked in Europe, USA, Canada, Australia, The Philippines, Thailand, India, Peru and in several African countries. Author of several books. He now lives in Dublin, Ireland.
Content: As we move deeper into the 21st Century, Religious will need to engage authentically with the ongoing decline of the current paradigm, and anticipate in a more discerning way what a new model will look like. All of us will need to be hospice-carers for what is dying and midwives for what the Spirit brings to birth. The implications of this double task will be explored in the Seminar.
