September 22, 2018, Adrian, Michigan – Adrian Dominican Sisters Patricia Walter, OP, and Carol Johannes, OP, offer a series of talks exploring the process of aging and two ways to approach it: by denying, resisting, and dreading the process or by embracing it in faith as an invitation to greater fullness of life. NOTE: This series has been cancelled and rescheduled for March 2019, due to unplanned surgery for presenter.
Aging and Spirituality takes place from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Wednesdays, October 4, October 18, and November 1 at Weber Retreat and Conference Center.
Sister Patricia has taught and learned from students while teaching at institutions such as Siena Heights University in Adrian; Aquinas Institute of Theology, a Dominican graduate school in St. Louis, Missouri; the Angelicum in Rome; and St. Mary Seminary in Cleveland. Sister Carol has been involved in the ministry of spiritual direction and has conducted workshops, directed retreats, and led groups exploring issues of spirituality. Both are former Prioresses of the Adrian Dominican Congregation.
