Friday Evening Talk: Emergence: Engaging Inner-Transformation for the Good of the Whole
The contemplative heart is the freeing heart, the healing heart, the companioning heart, and the heart filled with awe for all of God’s creating goodness. In our Friday evening conversations, we will consider the “turning of one’s heart” during an anxious-yet-potent time of wholeness-seeking. Turning “from the anxious and toward the potent” flows from nurturing one’s contemplative practice. Yes, even in the hurried everyday life of family, work, and layers of responsibilities we modern humans must navigate! During our evening session, we will give each other encouragement to stay the course as contemplative humans.
Retreat: Emergence: Who am I that God calls to me from the future?
Come to the quiet. In our creaturely simplicity, God gives us so many signs in nature that we are resilient, capable, and filled with potential for becoming the fullness of LIFE. Together, we will listen for God, calling you—calling us—from the deepest place of opening and compassion. God’s voice calling from the future is hope!
HOLISTIC HEALING FROM STRESS
Parishioner Mary Duennes, trained by Capacitar International, whose mission is Healing Ourselves, Healing Our World, is offering her skills to our community, leading simple movement toward regulating our stress. Join her on Sunday mornings, Feb. 2, 9, & 23, 10:10- 10:55 AM in Alter Hall. Mary will include practices which parents can teach their children. New material will be presented at each session so attendance at previous sessions is not required but helpful.

NEW BELLARMINE SHUTTLE
Every Sunday, before each parish Mass, the new Bellarmine Shuttle can pick you up at your car and bring you to the doors of the Chapel! After Mass, the Shuttle will take you back to your car.
The shuttle will run 30 minutes before the start of each Mass until 5-10 minutes after Mass begins. We encourage you to park in the Cintas C-2 parking lot and the shuttle will make continuous runs to that lot and back to the chapel. If you need to park elsewhere, just call the shuttle driver at (513) 641-8819 and they will come and pick you up.
If you would like to help by driving the shuttle once a month for the Mass of your preference, please contact Karen Brandstetter at Brandstetter@xavier.edu.
The shuttle seats five passengers and is heated for your comfort! Thanks to Xavier University and Fr. Mike Graham, S.J. for giving the parish this wonderful new shuttle to help our parishioners!
