A Pilgrim Shares Stories, Visions, and Unfolding Blessings on the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe

December 12th, 2022

from 7:00-9:00 p.m.


Earlier this year, writer, teacher, Bible scholar and feminist chaplain, Lizzie Berne DeGear, went on pilgrimage to Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico City. On the Feast Day, Lizzie will share about her experiences of Guadalupe, weaving together her pilgrim’s reflections, mystical musings, indigenous theology and scholarly knowledge. She will also invite us into our own discoveries of this Patron Saint of the Americas and this feminine face of the Divine. This new virtual program will include a presentation with evocative images, guided meditations, time for reflection, and a question-and-answer session.
