Days of Reflection

Aging from a Christian Standpoint, A Seminar Series by Sister Carol Clare Czyzewski

Join us for a series of reflection days aimed to deepen one’s faith through a focus on the later years of life. The third seminar in this series focuses on Simplicity and Loss and is scheduled for Monday, Nov. 12th. Reserve your space today!

Participants will consider the scriptural, sacramental, and communal dimensions of aging.  Each day’s agenda will include the speaker’s presentation, prayer, silence, and group discussion based on the day’s theme.

Monday, Nov. 12th, 4 – 6 p.m.:  Simplicity and Loss

The virtue of simplicity centers believers on the truth that “all is grace, all is gift.”  How can this holy perspective inform our approach to illness or death?

Monday, Dec. 10th, 4 – 6 p.m.:  Love and Humility

The love of God, revealed in the incarnation and life of Jesus, identifies “who I am as a human person.”  How can this mystery clarify the virtue of humility that aging requires?

$15.00 per person, per seminar

For reservations, contact Sister Carol at
