We’ve been living life for a long time. Does anything change as we reach mid-life? When we reach 50? Amazingly, as our strength grows less, our wisdom grows more. This gathering will reflect on how we can live fully as the years add up. We will explore the richness of the second half of life, hidden right before our eyes!
Carla Mae Streeter, OP is a Dominican of the Congregation of Catherine of Siena in Racine, Wisconsin. She is presently a professor (emerita) of Systematic Theology and Spirituality at Aquinas Institute of Theology in St. Louis. She completed doctoral studies in 1986. She was co-recipient of the first Jean-Marc Laporte Scholarship Award for academic excellence, and the first woman to complete a theological doctorate at Regis College. She lives in St. Louis where she is active in Interfaith Partnership of Metropolitan St. Louis and other ecumenical and interfaith efforts. She is active with the Living Insights Center, a gathering place for the religions of the world, and the Peace Economy Project, an advocacy group that urges a shift from excessive military spending to human and social needs.
Please join us for a day of reflection as we explore the riches found in our spiritual journeys.
