Reading Circles

The Institute for Religion and Science at Chestnut Hill College continues to sponsor two online monthly Reading Circles.

Monday evening at 6:30-8:00pm EDT:
June 12

Wednesday afternoon at 2:00-3:30pm EDT:
June 14

Since this year is the 100th anniversary of Teilhard’s essay, “The Mass on the World,” our Reading Circle will be discussing the essay during our May and June meetings. For May, we will concentrate on the essay itself.  In June, we will engage some of the commentaries on the essay. You can read the text here. You can find several reenactments of Teilhard’s Mass on YouTube. If you are interested in joining, contact Kathy Duffy at kduffy@chc.edu.
