“To Share the Common Table”  A Benedicti

“To Share the Common Table” A Benedictine Vision for Living in Times of Division

A Presentation by Nicole Sotelo


Sunday, March 7, 2021 3:00-4:30 p.m. 

Whether seen through the lens of racism, politics, or the pandemic, the divisions in our country became more visible over the last year and our personal and collective wounds grew wider. How might our internal and communal narratives impact the divisions? Is there another narrative that may move us forward? Join the Benedictine Oblates of St. Scholastica Monastery as we welcome Nicole Sotelo to speak on the topic of narratives, healing, and forgiveness in a time of division. Ms. Sotelo is the communications coordinator at Sheil Catholic Center at Northwestern University and the author of Women Healing from Abuse: Meditations for Finding Peace (Paulist Press) and Pray Your Way Through Forgiveness (Twenty-Third Publications). Sponsored by the Benedictine Oblates this event is FREE and OPEN to the public.

Catholic Sisters Week is an annual celebration that takes place from March 8-14 that shines a light on the spirituality, mission, and community building of women religious. Fifty-two weeks a year women religious stand with the poor and immigrants, teach children, fight injustice, heal the sick, share spirituality, empower women, defend the planet, promote peace, create community, and offer hope.

But for one week, March 8-14, Catholic Sisters Week shines the spotlight on women religious. Join us!
