Gathering at the Well (Discussion Groups):
Like the Samaritan woman at the well, mission happens in very ordinary, daily situations. So much so, that the Samaritan woman was freed to leave behind a jar of great material value. Jesus spoke to her deepest spiritual yearnings. Our afternoon will feature time for participants who have similar interests… youth, teachers, parish ministers, parish social justice teams, parish twinning teams, potential missionaries and the like… the opportunity to come together. Participants will “gather at the well” to discuss the various workshops they attended and how they spoke to the deep yearnings of their spirit.

** On Friday evening we will compliment Sr. McLaughlin’s talk with a presentation by the Asilimi Dancers from the Asilimi Museum & Institute. This will be an interactive expereice, so come ready for audience participation! See their website at: www.asilimi.com
