This is an intergenerational experience for high school students, young adults, families, and others—some locations and topics may have age appropriate considerations.

POWER Summit 2012 – “Revolution of the Heart” was an impacting two-day experience where participants explored a range of issues from personal gifts and strengths and power to global economics and the current state of revolution in our world. The intergenerational learning group consisted of students from Benilde-St. Margaret and Cretin-Derham Hall, St. Joseph Worker volunteers, Sisters of St. Joseph from St. Paul and from the Congregational Leadership Team, Celeste’s Dream staff, members of two local Catholic Worker Communities, a St. Catherine University professor, a POWER Summit alumna, and the director of a local nonprofit Appetite for Change.

Presentation and a Pint is an opportunity to attend and discuss presentations on topics of spirituality and justice. We mainly attend presentations of renowned speakers when they visit the Twin Cities area; some have included Sisters Joan Chittister, Simone Campbell, and Helen Prejean. Following the presentation we then enjoy some refreshment and further conversation at a local establishment. If you know of a quality speaker upcoming, let us know by contacting Jill by e-mail or at 651-696-2873.
