Learning & Growing
On chosen Sundays we explore a broad variety of questions and practices related to our individual and collective spiritual journeys: previous topics have included drug use & recovery, Jewish holidays, the impact of incarceration on families, liturgical seasons, racism & anti-racism, Muslim life, icon making, Buddhist meditation, glass blowing, self-care and pastoral care.
Currently on hold due to COVID 19 restrictions.
"Transformative Justice seeks to provide people who experience/d violence with immediate safety and long-term healing and reparations while holding people who commit violence accountable within and by their communities. Accountability includes stopping immediate abuse, making a commitment to not engage in future abuse, and offering reparations for past abuse. Such accountability requires on-going support and transformative healing."
St. Mary's offers an occasional series of Learning Circles to explore how to bring transformative justice to our community. Next series to begin in September 2021. Registration required, please contact the Parish Office.
