"DIVINE MYSTERY IN THE HEART OF CREATION":
A DAY OF REFLECTION WITH SR. LINDA NEIL, CSJ
Come and engage in a day of reflection that integrates the gospel with our call to care for Creation. Sacred Mystery pulsates throughout Creation! Jesus was immersed in this mystery. He drew so much of his inspiration and so many of his teachings from the wisdom and wonder of Creation. The day includes reflections on the scriptures in light of the Beatitudes, selected parables, and Laudato Si. Participants will reflect on Jesus’ witness to the awesomeness of our Earth using images from Hubble, the artwork of Marion Honors, CSJ, and the photography of Clare Pelkey, CSJ. There will be opportunities for personal reflection and group sharing.
Morning session — Divine Mystery in the Heart of Creation: integrating the Gospel and our call to be the face of God for all Creation.
Afternoon session — Healing Earth with the Beatitudes: exploring the amazing diversity of life and experiencing the call to live the dynamics of the Universe.

NY PATH THROUGH HISTORY WEEKEND
"THE VEEDERS OF MONTGOMERY COUNTY"
June 17-19, 2PM daily
Join the staff and community of the Saint Kateri Tekakwitha National Shrine & Historic Site for a presentation on the site’s Revolutionary-era history. The Veeder family, whose members included Colonel Volkert Veeder and state legislators Johannes Veeder and Simon Veeder, owned the land that the Shrine stands on for much of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
Visit the 1782 Veeder farmhouse and barn, hear about our continuing work restoring the Early Republic-era family graveyard, and see a replica of the Tryon County Liberty Pole, erected to demonstrate the area’s Patriot loyalties. While you're on the grounds, you can also visit the National Register Historic Site of the Caughnawaga excavation, the only fully excavated Iroquois/Haudenosaunee village in the world, as well as our Native American Museum.
ALL NATIONS, ALL FAITHS, ONE PRAYER
"Following the birth of a White Buffalo Calf in 1994, the Keeper of the White Buffalo Calf Pipe for the Lakota, Dakota, Nakota Nations, Arvol Looking Horse, was directed to honor the Four Directions with ceremony on June 21st. According to Lakota Star Knowledge, the birth of Miracle, a female white buffalo, signaled a time of earth changes and the coming of the mending of the Hoop of All Nations.
In addition to a main gathering at a sacred site chosen each year, we ask others to join us at their own sacred sites as well as in their churches, mosques, temples, synagogues and other places of prayer."
Join us as leaders of different faiths guide us in praying for peace and for healing for the Earth.
