Loving Beyond Limits

Fall 2021 Webinar Series Presented by Spirit Alive: The CSJ Institute for Faith Inquiry and Education

The Spirit Alive Institute will launch with a series of fall webinars. Starting January 2022, Spirit Alive will also be offering a variety of mini-courses on Scripture and Theology, taught by experienced faculty. Courses listing will be posted by mid-October. Registration will begin in early November. The courses are open to all.

The Sisters of Saint Joseph of Brentwood, NY, their associates, and partners in ministry are committed to promoting justice, fostering diversity and inclusion, and protecting earth, our common home. This webinar series was motivated by those commitments which were affirmed at their general chapter in April 2021. We are glad you can join us for this webinar series and hope you will be inspired to share our commitments.
