An interfaith retreat open to all students will be facilitated by Susan Stabile of the UST School of Law on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 12 and 13.
This weekend event for students of the University of St. Thomas, College of St. Benedict and St. John’s University will focus on spiritual dynamics that operate across different faith traditions. It will foster interfaith learning and experiences of prayer and contemplation from several different religions and will allow time for sharing the fruits of those experiences.
The retreat will run from 9:30 a.m. Saturday to 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 12-13, at the Episcopal House of Prayer in Collegeville, Minn. The cost of $39 includes food, a shared bedroom and transportation.
The Episcopal House of Prayer is situated on five acres of wooded land provided by St. John’s Abbey, a Roman Catholic Benedictine abbey in Collegeville, Minn., just 90 minutes from the Twin Cities.
Stabile, a professor of law at St. Thomas, is a spiritual director who often leads retreats and other programs of spiritual formation. She recently finished writing a book that adapts Tibetan Buddhist meditations for Christians.
This retreat is sponsored by the Jay Phillips Center for Interfaith Learning and co-sponsored by the campus ministry offices at the University of St. Thomas, College of St. Benedict and St. John’s University.
