RADIATE SPEAKER--Sr. Nancy Usselmann, F.S.P.

Discipleship Today: Becoming Cultural Mystics

St. Dominic's Church Nave, 7:30 PM.  Free Admission.

Presentation followed by reception in Parish Hall.  **Special followup workshop on social media and evangelization w/ Sr. Nancy the following day (Saturday) in St. Dominic's Parish Hall.  

For our annual St. Dominic's Radiate Conference, Sr. Nancy will ask: How can we live our faith within the secular popular culture? It is about being mystics who see God's grace present in all human longings and desires and offer the culture a soul. We can be that transformative presence in the world today, if we reflect on our incarnational and sacramental imaginations, letting Christ speak through us for a culture that seeks communion, connection and purpose.

Sr. Nancy is the Director of the Pauline Center for Media Studies and a Media Literacy Education Specialist.   She has degrees in Communications Arts and a Masters in Theology and the Arts from Fuller Theological Seminary.
