Drumalis Workshop

As part of the celebrations of the bicentenary of the birth of Elizabeth Prout, the founder of the Sisters of the Cross and Passion, Drumalis is pleased to host a series of lectures during the year 2020-2021.  Speakers include Dr Sr Gemma Simmonds, Professor Amy-Jill Levine, professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt University and Dom Christopher Jamison, author, broadcaster and Abbot President of the English Benedictine Congregation.
The first of these lectures will take place by Zoom on Thursday evening, October 22nd at 7 pm.  It may be of particular interest to those who are interested in Ignatian Spirituality. The speaker is Dr Sr Gemma Simmonds who will talk on the subject ‘Hope in a Time of Pandemic‘.   ‘Three things will last forever–faith, hope, and love–and the greatest of these is love’ (1 Cor. 13:13)   Love may be the greatest thing, but without hope neither faith nor love can flourish.  What is hope?  How do we practise it, and how do we hold on to hope in a time of pandemic?  How can we experience God in all things and help others to do the same?    Theologian and spiritual director Gemma Simmonds reflects on these questions from within the Ignatian spiritual tradition and invites you to share questions and explorations around the virtue of hope.

We would be grateful if you would bring this to the attention of anyone who might be interested.
