Mary Magdalene as Spiritual Guide: A Quiet Afternoon in Women's History Month


On Saturday, March 31, from 2:00-5:00pm, General Seminary's Center for Christian Spirituality will host a quiet afternoon that will invite participants to experience spiritual direction through the story of Mary Magdalene, who reveals what it means to be fully present to God and to bear witness to God’s life-giving acts. She is, therefore, a model for all who seek a deeper relationship with the holy and for any who would serve as a spiritual companion to others. The day will include readings, group exercises and prayer and will be accompanied by four original sculptures of Mary Magdalene that are meditations on the arc of her ministry and witness. Leading the quiet afternoon will be Heather Sisk, a sculptor and spiritual director in New York City. This event is made possible by a grant from the Evangelical Education Society of the Episcopal Church. To learn more and to register, click
