Services held at 10 am each Sunday, from September to May
in Lourdes Hall,
457 Gould St., Winona — handicapped accessible entrance on Howard (10th) St.
Both the main door and the Howard St door will be open every Sunday. However, when there has been a snowstorm and maintenance hasn’t had time to clear all sidewalks, the Howard St. door will be the one that is cleared first. The janitor will make every effort to clear the front steps and main sidewalk access by 9:30 a.m. but if it hasn’t been cleared, please use the Howard St. door.
THEME 4: CURIOSITY
February 25 Presenter: Jenni McHugh; Coordinator: John Collins
‘HOLDING THE SPACE’ OF ANOTHER’S EXPERIENCE
What does it mean to “hold the space” of another’s experience? Is it something we do by listening? Is it an emotional process? A spiritual process? A physiological or physical process? Why does it even matter? Jenni will talk about her growing understanding of “holding the space” for others as a personal, professional, and spiritual practice. She will share her thoughts through the lens of her own experiences of a lonely but instructive childhood and her work over the years with laboring women, sweet babies, and parents and children who have suffered at the hands of those who are supposed to create, not destroy, their sense of belonging in the world.
All are welcome to come for Silent Meditation (with brief meditation instructions) at 9am Sundays in the K-4 classroom.
People who like to sing are encouraged to “warm up” their voices at 9:45am before the Sunday Services.
“Listen, O drop, give yourself up without regret,
and in exchange gain the Ocean.
Listen, O drop, bestow upon yourself this honor,
and in the arms of the Sea be secure.‘
