Merton and Women (online)

May 8 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm

Mother’s Day weekend is an appropriate time to consider Thomas Merton and women. After an overview of his female friends, we’ll visit Hagia Sophia, his theology of Lady Wisdom, and a spiritual exchange on prayer with his English “sister,” Etta Gullick.

There will be comfort breaks and time for questions and answers. The retreat will be held online using Zoom.

Saturday, May 8, 2021 – 9:30 AM – 2:00 PM (Central Time).


Cost: $30
