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?
