Dear Family, 

During this time of isolation, we are excited to be able to offer a new program of live Webinars with authors and special guests. Please join us this week for illuminating conversations on Celtic spirituality with Christine Valters Paintner, Finding Peace at Home with Fr. Ronald Rolheiser, dealing with anxiety and grief with Roger Hutchinson, the fascinating life of Julian of Norwich who famously assures us that “all will be well,” and much more. Find the complete calendar here. 

If we can assist you in any way, please do not hesitate to be in touch with us.
