Mid-Day Dialogue on Faith: The Role of Ritual

Wednesday, February 6 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.

University of St. Thomas School of Law, Room 244

1000 LaSalle Ave., Minneapolis, MN

A ritual is a set of actions, often valued for their symbolic value, prescribed by the traditions of a community.  Rituals, which can be performed by an individual or by a group, are a feature of almost all human societies.

In the religious context, rituals often have a close connection to reverence.  Both the role of rituals and the types of rituals vary considerably among different faith traditions.

Join us for a Mid-Day Dialogue among Chato Hazelbaker, Mark Osler and Susan Stabile, as they talk about the role and function of religious ritual within their faith traditions.

This dialogue, sponsored by the Holloran Center, will be held from 12:30-1:30 and includes lunch.  Given that lunch will be served, please RSVP to Bethany Fletcher at moel1755@stthomas.edu.
