Developing Contemplative Presence: Heart Leaders for these Dangerous, Delicate Times

May 20th – 22nd 2016

This weekend offers us an opportunity to focus on a dimension of religious life that has been in the shadows for some time as religious women became activists in the years following the Vatican Council. Now, in a time of diminishing numbers and the limitations of aging members, a call to live more contemplatively and compassionately (Heart Presence) is arising in specific and urgent ways. During this weekend, both teaching and practicing will offer and encourage a practical welcoming of these dimensions into our lives.

The Religious in Atlantic Canada (RAC) Gathering gathers annually to explore subjects that have greatest bearing on our common future as religious living in these times. We also work to build the capacity for leadership among the younger generations within religious life. Any who wish to support this exploration are most welcome to join the gathering and be part of the conversation.
