Contemporary Contexts of Compassion Speaker Series


The Speakers Series*   Now Zooming to you!

In 2000 a long time friend of the Sisters of the Divine Compassion made us an offer:  we would invite speakers to explore Compassion in the 21st Century, and our friend would fund it . 
Since then we have been fortunate to have  some of the finest  theologians, social activists, spiritual mentors, and authors around share their unique perspectives on this universal charism  Our past presenters have included:

Doris Donnelly                                             Bishop Tom Gumbleton
Diana Hayes                                                Edwina Gateley
Michael Morwood                                        Ilia DeLio, OSF
Diarmuid O’Murchu                                     John Haughey, SJ  
Simone Campbell, SSS                               Margaret Silf
Paula D’Arcy                                                Elizabeth Dreyer
John Haight                                                 Helen Prejean, CSJ   
Nancy Sylvester, IHM                                  Nancy Ammerman, PhDOver the years you have requested an opportunity to view remotely. 

And then Zoom entered our every-day language as a noun a verb and a gerund.  

This year we are planning three 45-minute presentations each with a Q&A opportunity on Zoom.  The first presentation, on systemic racism, will be coming soon

Because Zoom capacity is limited, registration will be on a first-come-first-served basis, and a donation will be requested to hold the spot.

Watch for e-mails in the next few weeks inviting you to our first-ever Zoom Speakers Series event!


*This series is intended for a broad audience inclusive of age of ages and faith traditions.
