Being Benedictine Across Generations with Jessie Bazan

10 a.m Pacific, November 11, 2020 via Zoom

How do people of different generations embody Benedictine spirituality? Practices like obedience, listening, and hospitality have rooted Benedictine communities since the beginning — and these practices take on new life with each generation.

Jessie Bazan is the editor and co-author of Dear Joan Chittister: Conversations with Women in the Church. The book focuses on intergenerational sharing with nine other millennial theologians and Sister Joan Chittister, OSB. During this presentation, Jessie will draw on stories from the book to help us see with fresh eyes the ways people across generations can live out Benedictine practices in our homes and workplaces today.

Sister Joan and Jessie.

Bazan received her Masters of Divinity degree from the Saint John’s School of Theology and Seminary in Collegeville, Minnesota. One of the great gifts of her life is living a bike ride away from the monastic communities at Saint Benedict’s Monastery and Saint John’s Abbey.
