Maryknoll Mission Institute In Ossining Explores New Ways To Do Justice

OSSINING, N.Y. — The Maryknoll Mission Institute in Ossining will host Sister Nancy Sylvester from May 10-15 as she leads a program titled “Upstart Spring: Imagine Justice… Exploration into God” at the Maryknoll Sisters Center.

“Increasing inequality, pervasive violence, divisive politics...what has all of our work for social justice meant?” Sylvester wonders during the course of the program.

Other attendees will attempt to answer that question by “deepen (their) contemplative practice communally and imagine new ways of being with each other, with all beings on Earth and with the Divine,” as Sylvester says.

She is the founder of the Institute for Communal Contemplation and Dialogue in Detroit, along with a previous stint as an adviser on the United States Bishops’ International Policy Committee and is a member of the board of the National Interfaith Committee for Worker Justice.

Admission for the five days is $200, along with a $50 registration fee.

The Maryknoll Sisters Center is at 10 Pinesbridge Road in Ossining.
