How Fr. William Meninger O.C.S.O. taught me to die

November 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Can you imagine what it would be like to be friended by a monk? Dan Dobbins became a close friend and traveling companion to Trappist Monk, Fr. William Meninger (Order of the Cistercians of the Strict Observance), assisting him for 12 years with travel, workshops, lectures, and retreats.

In this intimate, one-hour session, Dan will draw upon memorable experiences, teachings and the wisdom of suffering Fr. Meninger shared as he approached his death. The event will include an opportunity for questions and answers.

This will be ONLINE ONLY; held via Zoom (link coming soon)
