ACU staff are invited to attend upcoming 2017 Marian Lectures on spirituality in the 21st century, which are taking place across the country in May and June.
At this time the Holy Spirit is unearthing ‘underground cathedrals’ in unlikely places and people. In the lives of ordinary people the Spirit is calling us to the ‘edges’ to open us out through the ‘cracks’.
You are invited to enter this conversation in search of ‘underground cathedrals’ with the wisdom of noted educator and spiritual guide Mark Patrick Hederman OSB of Glenstal Abbey, Ireland.
Whether we are educators or simply ‘seekers’ trying to discover the way forward – our mission is to allow the energy of divine love to stretch us.
Hederman is an educator, headmaster, poet, philosopher and public intellectual. He has been a monk of Glenstal Abbey in Limerick for over 40 years. Formerly headmaster of the school, he has just completed eight years as Abbot. Hederman has a doctorate in the philosophy of education and studied in Paris under the famous Jewish philosopher Emmanual Levinas. He has lectured in philosophy and literature in America, Nigeria and Ireland.
