An international group of religious men and women, including Dehonians from the United States and Argentina and lay persons from Chile, have organized a series of four webinars for June focused on deepening one’s spirituality of the Sacred Heart. They will be held in Spanish.
“We will explore Sacred Heart spirituality in a holistic way with contributions from psychology, anthropology, spirituality and lived experiences,” said Br. Diego Diaz, SCJ, one of the series organizers and a co-presenter of two of the sessions. Br. Diego currently serves in Mississippi with Sacred Heart Southern Missions.
“Every day we experience the love that God has for us,” continued Br. Diego. “We want to communicate that love through different expressions, such as music, painting, poetry and contemplation. These webinars offer a place for people to come together to support one another as we focus on a particular aspect of the Sacred Heart.”
Seminar dates and topics:
JUNE 5 – Anthropology of the Heart; participants will learn about how to care for the physical self in the midst of the pandemic. Br. Diego and Professor Guillermo Bordón are presenters; Ariel Reyes and Sr. Graciela Dibo, OP will facilitate.
