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 final retreat, given by Dr. Julie Burkey on the theme of
Authenticity and Prayer: Sustenance for Personal and Professional Life
will be held on Monday, March 31, 2014, from 9 to 11 a.m. in the
Chancellor’s Suite, Student Center.
Teresa of Avila said, "Authentic prayer changes us - unmasks us…"
Prayer is the key to achieving authenticity in the spiritual life - and
all of life. Taking examples from Celtic prayer and the prayer life of
several saints, we will discuss how authentic prayer can center us,
while helping us to become authentically who we are in both our personal
and professional lives.
