Speaking in Hartford Monday Evening and Tuesday

For those in the Hartford, CT, area, I will be speaking at St. Patrick-St. Anthony Church and Franciscan Center for Urban Ministry this evening on the subject of Thomas Merton. The talk, titled, “Thomas Merton: A Modern Prophet and Model of Contemplation and Action,” is a combination of presentation on the life and work of Thomas Merton, the late American Trappist Monk and best-selling spiritual writer, as well as an opportunity for discussion and Lenten prayer. Working with the text of Merton, I will provide some context and insight about the writing and then share selections of his work on four particular themes: Identity, Silence, Contemplation and Action. The evening’s events begin at 5:00 pm. Consult the website above for more information.

I will also be speaking for a much briefer session the next day, Tuesday March 13, as part of the Lenten Nourishment Program at noontime. As always, for information on speaking events, conferences, workshops and retreats, visit DanHoran.com/events

  1. Have you ever met Hartford’s retired auxiliary bishop, Peter Rosazza? Bishop Peter is an awesome man. I got to know him when I was in college through the National Catholic Student Coalition.

    Would be great if the two of you connected somehow while you are there.

    • I was thinking Dan will run into one of the most outstanding men I have ever known, Fr. Tom Gallagher, ofm. He has had a profound impact on my life.
