“The River of Fire”: A Special Advent Session with Sr. Helen Prejean (virtual)

December 4, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Celebrated author and activist Sr. Helen Prejean will join John Dear and the Beatitudes Center for a special session as we begin Advent to reflect on our life journeys as followers of the nonviolent Jesus.

Sr. Helen is the best-selling author of Dead Man Walking, an account of her work with prisoners on death row, the families of their victims, and her efforts to abolish the death penalty. That book was made into an Oscar winning movie. During our time, Sr. Helen will share her spiritual journey, from her new book, River of Fire, and invite us to reflect on our own spiritual journeys, reenergize our discipleship to the nonviolent Jesus and redouble our work as his disciples and apostles to end poverty, racism, executions, war and environmental destruction.

A great way to start Advent together!

The session will last one and a half hours; cost: $30.

Registration is limited. https://form.jotform.com/211977304256155
