Intentional Welcoming: Holding Healthy Boundaries as a Spiritual Practice
A Conversation and Book Signing with Paul Schroeder
St. Paul, Seattle | October 29, After 9:00am & 11:15am Masses
Join us for a special guest forum with Paul Schroeder on the spiritual practices engaged in his new book Practice Makes Purpose. We have been taught to associate spirituality with saying “yes.” We are supposed to say yes to God, to our neighbor, to the church or pastor, to just about everyone. But saying “no” is also a spiritual act. This conversation with Paul will focus on holding healthy boundaries in order to preserve precious resources–our time, energy, and attention–so they can be devoted to the best possible use. Paul’s book is available as a Kindle or paperback on Amazon. A limited number of books will be available for purchase on site.

Seattle Choral Company at Saint Mark’s Cathedral, Seattle | March 24, 8:00pm | Tickets: $25 (general), $20 (student/military/veteran), $5 (student), Children 6 to 10 FREE
In 2018 the three Baltic nations of Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuania—home of the “Singing Revolution” —will jointly celebrate their 100th anniversary of statehood and independence. In the Baltics, singing is cultural and historical. Choral music was vital in developing and maintaining a sense of national identity during many years of occupation, as well as providing a means of creative resistance; and so it retained its central role within the culture.
On March 24, 2018, the Seattle Choral Company, along with six participating area choirs, will salute this centennial with a concert demonstrating the sheer beauty and excellence of choral music from the Baltic countries.
