Spiritual Enrichment

Anam Cara Circle -  Anam Cara is the Gaelic word for soul-friend (a friend for your soul).  A community of friends will emerge as we make this journey together. 

Come join us as Jane Comerford, CSJ takes us through an amazing journey of the Celtic tradition.  Each program will offer participants the opportunity to understand and experience beliefs and spiritual practices drawn from the Celtic tradition.  Each session will consist of time for input on the theme of the month, quiet time for reflection, time spent in nature, group sharing and meaningful rituals honoring the time/season of the year.  Come discover and explore.

This ongoing group will hold five sessions from 9:30am to 3:30pm on Saturdays.  The fee per session is $75 with lunch and $65 without or participate in all five sessions for $300.  Preregistration is required.

Do What I Can
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain: If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin Unto his nest again, I shall not live in vain.
— Emily Dickinson
