Annual Summer Seminar
For over 30 years, the Center has hosted a summer seminar that reflected the essence of its mission--to develop critical conversations around faith and reason, the individual and social dimensions of spirituality, and contemporary religious issues, particularly as they relate to women.
A Hunger for Wholeness:
Exploring the Inner-Outer Universe
with Ilia Delio, OSF
June 10-13, 2018
Take time for an intellectual retreat on the beautiful campus of Saint Mary’s College!

Building on her 2017 Madeleva Lecture manuscript titled, A Hunger for Wholeness: Soul, Space, and Transcendence, Sr. Ilia will explore the interior freedom humans possess and how this affects our relationship to God’s Trinitarian life. Additional speakers John F. Haught and Heidi Russell will address God’s love acting in a world of dynamic change. Seminar participants will also enjoy meals and fellowship together, Eucharistic liturgies, and optional evening activities to nurture mind, body, and spirit.
