Special Invitation to the Dominican House of Studies this Sunday Feb 18

Greetings! We have received an invitation from Karen Sloan, a Presbyterian minister from New Haven, CT who is interested in exploring 'new/old' monastic connections to visit the Dominican House of Studies Sunday afternoon Feb 18th. Karen visited the Dominicans with Brian McLaren this past October, has written an article about them published in Relevant magazine and is now making a return visit to DC. The Dominicans are, as she put's it, "Emergent-minded", and eager to share their tradition.

The schedule for Sunday is:
3:30 - 4:00pm Gathering and Tour of the House of Studies
4:00 - 5:30pm Presentation, Conversation, Q&A, about Dominican Life
5:40 - 6:00pm Evening Prayer with the Dominicans in their Chapel

If possible, Karen requests an RSVP to flirtingwithmonasticism@gmail.com so they will know how many to expect.

The address is:

Dominican House of Studies
487 Michigan Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20017-1585

If you have time before hand, the Basilica of the National Shrine is across the street. Not only is this a beautiful sancutary, but there are a couple of book stores worth browsing. This sounds like an exciting opportunity! The link to the Dominican House of Studies website is http://www.dhs.edu

Hope to see you there. Let me know if you have any questions!
