Sister Katherine Hanley, CSJ, will lead a workshop on Christian discernment from 10 a.m.-3:30 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 23, in the Washington/California Room of the COG at Gonzaga University. The cost for the event, which is open to the public, is $35 and includes lunch and refreshments.
People are faced with choices, options and possibilities every day, and it is often difficult to determine the appropriate course of action. This workshop, co-sponsored by the Gonzaga religious studies department and the St. Joseph Family Center, will explore decision-making by asking how God would have people look at the choices they make. The workshop also includes a discussion of the role of tradition, and some of the aids, traps and pitfalls that are part of the process. The seminar includes prayer, conversation, a case study and time for questions.
Hanley, who holds a Ph.D., is dean and director of the Albany campus of St. Bernard’s School of Theology and Ministry in Albany, N.Y. She has worked as a professor, spiritual director, facilitator, poet and presenter at a variety of gatherings throughout North America, Europe and Asia.
