Often, people feel a separation between their lives of faith and the work they perform every day. This concern was reinforced in one of the documents of the Second Vatican Council which stated, "This split between the faith which many profess and their daily lives deserves to be counted among the more serious errors of our age."
This retreat will encourage participants to reflect on the meaning of work in their lives. Retreat participants will have the opportunity to hear how others have managed to find balance and discovered how to integrate their spiritualities into the workplace.
The day will be hosted by Julie Burkey, M.A.P.M., Coordinator of the Center for Workplace Spirituality (CWS) which offers programs focusing on a spirituality of work for parishes and academia as well as the secular workplace. Julie holds a master's degree from Immaculate Conception Seminary and is an adjunct professor at the Seminary, teaching the course she created, Theology of Work. She is currently pursuing a Doctor of Ministry degree at The Catholic University of America.
