Intentional Community Living in College and Beyond

Tuesday, February 20, 6:00 p.m.

Leah Libresco, author of “Arriving at Amen: Seven Catholic Prayers Even I Can Offer,” will lead the group in a discussion of their goals for thick community after college—how does each person attending want to praise God with others? We will use a series of prompts to review examples of others that we admire and can imitate, to use the works of mercy as a guide to planning specific events, to discussing particular logistical preparations (cooking for crowds, making new friends welcome) that Leah has found useful in her own life. We will close by discussing what skills students feel like they need to develop in order to be able to open their lives to greater community (overcoming shyness, more experience with daily prayer, cooking), and how they can work on developing these strengths while in college (or graduate school).
