Pauline Spirit


Schedule a Talk!
Looking for a way to help  your parish or organization members come to a better knowledge of the Apostle Paul? Who better than the Daughters of St. Paul to bring his life, his letters, his most influential ideas to life? Choose one or more of these insightful Pauline Year presentations:

Face to Face with Paul

Much of the artistic tradition depicting the life of Paul depends not only on Scripture, but on little-known Christian legends. You may be surprised by what you can learn of Paul’s life, ministry and martyrdom as seen through the lens of 100 works of art.

(This presentation runs roughly 90 minutes and requires a room dark enough for slides to be visible. I provide the projector; you provide a screen or a blank wall.)

Starting to Read Paul

An introduction to the Letters of St. Paul in their overall context: the Bible as Paul knew it; the Bible as Paul used it; Paul as a biblical author. Ideal for an audience just getting started in Scripture study.

Five Big Ideas We Owe to Paul

Many Catholic commonplaces, from “offering it up” to the language of marriage as a sacrament, come to us from St. Paul. What does St. Paul have to say to us today through these “big ideas” that he was the first to articulate?

Pauline Day of Recollection

Offer your parishioners, staff or organization members a morning of prayer and reflection with St. Paul. Morning “retreat” consists of two half-hour conferences on Pauline spirituality, plus a guided Hour of Eucharistic Adoration.

Presenter: Sister Anne Flanagan, fsp (M.A. Religious Studies, St. Charles Seminary, Overbrook, PA; Certificate in Spiritual Formation, Catholic Theological Union, Chicago).

Other topics available: Finding Jesus on Facebook; The Liturgy of the Hours: What it is and How to Pray it; The Spirituality of Eucharistic Adoration; Getting the Most Out of Mass (four sessions).

Contact info: email romans8v29  [at] gmail [dot] com or call (Mon-Sat 10:00-5:30 CST) 312 346 4228


A stipend of $150 is requested for each presentation. (The Day of Recollection functions as two presentations.) Travel/lodging added for bookings beyond the Chicago metropolitan area. Catholic resources in Scripture study and prayer for all ages can be made available for purchase before and after all sessions. (If your parish has a school, we can coordinate a J-Club Catholic book fair for the children to coincide with the adult faith formation presentations. See JClubCatholic.com for information about the book fair program.)

Sr. Anne, do you still have any dates available for travel outside the Chicago area? I’m especially looking at the MLK weekend in January.
