Classes on Julian of Norwich at St. Patrickís


St. Patrickís Episcopal Church

Wednesday July 11th 2018 - 10:00am to

Father Harry Allagree will present a series of classes on Julian of Norwich, a 14th century anchoress at St. Julianís Church in Norwich, England, known for her classic book, The Revelations of Divine Love. Julian lived during a time of famine, plague and poverty, yet her writings are suffused with intense hope, and revelation of divine love. She was a popular and sought-after spiritual counselor in her own time, and remains so today.

The three classes will discuss the spiritual revelations given to Julian of Norwich. Getting a copy of her book is recommended but not required reading. Classes are July 11, 18 and 25, at 10 a.m. in the Common Room at St. Patrickís Church.

Father Allagreeís presentations are fresh, witty, and uplifting. He has led retreats and workshops for over 50 years and has travelled to the sites of various mystics in North Wales, The Netherlands, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, and England, including the Shrine of Julian in Norwich. He currently resides in Cotati and is a member of St. Stephenís Episcopal Church, Sebastopol.

St. Patrickís is always accepting non-perishable food for the FISH food pantry, as well as new, white socks for the Open Table Ministry at the Church of the Incarnation in Santa Rosa. At the moment, St. Patrickís is also collecting clothing, shoes, toys, linens and household items for St. Johnís Thrift Store in Lakeport.

For more information, or to get on the St. Patrickís e-news list, contact the church at 833-4228. St. Patrickís Episcopal Church is located at 9000 Sonoma Hwy., across from the Kenwood Fire Station.
