Passion through the Eyes of His Mother!
April 15, 6:30-8:00pm
As we enter into Holy Week, come and experience the passion of two mothers. Based on a poem by Velma West Skyene, it is a dialogue between two mothers, who experience a shared sorrow and question the mystery around their sons’ death.
By entering into the dialogue between them, we begin to know the ache of their human hearts. Let us join our hearts to theirs, lift up the conditions and passions of our world, our church, our community and our families. There will be a time of prayer and reflection based on the interactive dialogue of these two mothers. Both men and women are invited to participate in this program.
Rochester Franciscan Sister Chris Stanoch and Cojourner Judy Dawley will serve as facilitators. Sister Chris is a spiritual leader of prayer and pastoral counselor, with experience working in parishes and at Mayo Clinic as a resident chaplain. She also served as a counselor for an ecumenical counseling center in the Chicago area. Judy is a Licensed Independent Social Worker and provides support to children through play therapy using a dog and six horses.
