Spirituality in the Second Half of Life

Event Date: 
June 28, 2017

We’ve lived a lot of life…we’ve met crisis after crisis…we’ve grieved, we’ve been overjoyed. How can we deepen our relationship with God now…after we’ve lived so much of life? Shall I pray differently? See life with a new perspective? Respond differently?

This time of reflection will explore these questions and more. How do I deepen my personal prayer? What about old wounds and forgiveness? Where do I find God, really, in this second half of my life? This is a time of wonder, often of physical challenge, of deep questions. Come explore some of them. You may find yourself renewed, and even more…you may find words to share with others.

Led by Carla Mae Streeter, OP. $25.00 – lunch included

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, a graduate school of Theology and Ministry sponsored by the Dominicans of the Central Province adjoined to St. Louis University in St. Louis.

Using the resources of the Lonergan Research Institute in Toronto, Canada, she completed doctoral studies with the Canadian Jesuits at Regis College of the Toronto School of Theology in Toronto 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. Her specialty is the thought of the Canadian Aquinas scholar, Bernard Lonergan, as that thought provides a framework for the dialogue of theology with other disciplines, and with other religious traditions.

Her experience includes eleven years of lay leadership training on the parish level, spiritual direction, and social advocacy. Carla Mae has been active as a facilitator for several religious congregations, and has served her own community in the renewal of its own constitution and in its theological renewal. She lives in St. Louis where she is active in Interfaith Partnership of Metropolitan St. Louis and other ecumenical and interfaith efforts. Carla Mae serves on the boards of ITEST, the Institute for the Theological Encounter with Science and Technology, and the Workers Right Board of Jobs with Justice. 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 the economic shift from excessive military spending to human and social needs.
