SINSINAWA, Wis.—Join Eric Anglada and Sister Christin Tomy, OP, for a workshop that helps ease into letting go of belongings while discovering a connection to your community and living simply. Belonging, Not Belongings: A Retreat on Community, Simplicity, and Sustainable Living will be held at Sinsinawa Mound 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, April 6. In a time of great social and ecological upheaval, it is vital that we forge alternative ways of being in the world. During the retreat, participants will grapple with and explore lifestyles that go beyond the consumer paradigm and instead generate connection and kinship. Drawing from examples as diverse as permaculture, Scripture, and 20th-century luminaries Thomas Merton and Dorothy Day, we will inspire one another to redefine the “good life.” For more information, contact Guest Services at 608-748-4411 or visit our website at www.sinsinawa.org/moundcenter. Sinsinawa Mound, the motherhouse for the Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters, is located in southwest Wisconsin on County Road Z, off Highway 11, about five miles northeast of Dubuque.

Samuel Mazzuchelli, Rose Hawthorne, and the Search for an American Saint
Kathleen Sprows Cummings, PhD
January 30, 2019, 5 pm, $30
Dominican University, River Forest, IL
Dr. Cummings will discuss two Dominican candidates for canonization in the context of already recognized American saints, such as the North American martyrs, Frances Cabrini and Elizabeth Ann Seton. She will describe not only the lives of these holy men and women but also their “afterlives” in American historical memory—and will propose that Mazzuchelli and Hawthorne may well be the saints the United States needs today. Dr. Cummings is Associate Professor of American Studies at the University of Notre Dame.
