The Heart of the University Retreat Series gives faculty and
administrators of all faiths the opportunity for input and guided
reflection. The series is co-sponsored by the Office of Mission and
Ministry, and the Center for Vocation and Servant Leadership.
The second retreat, given by Dr. Theresa Bartolotta on the theme of
Authenticity and Sacrifice: The Search for Meaning and Goodness in the
Context of Life’s Challenges will be held on Wednesday, November 6,
2013, from 9 to 11 a.m. in the Chancellor’s Suite, Student Center.
In this life each of us bears many burdens; some are visible, others
are harder to see. The topic of this retreat will be the convergence of
work and personal life in the context of sacrifice. What does it mean to
struggle? What is the impact on work life? How can good come of
sacrifice? What is the good? How can we remain strong and vibrant as we
work to find the true meaning and goodness in sacrifice?
