St James Institute: Hatch, Match and Despatch

17 March 2019 (or 21 or 28 March)
Presented by Associate Professor Michael Horsburgh AM. Anglican prayer books contain services that are used only when the necessity arises: baptism, marriage and funeral services are the chief of these, but there are others. What are these services about? How did they come to their present form? Do they contain any surprises? In conjunction with this seminar, there will be a display of the Parish Registers dating back to 1824 and a display of some archival material charting the history of some of these 'occasional services' at St James'. Times vary according to date. St James' Hall, Level 1, 169–171 Phillip Street. More information and bookings

27 March 2019 (repeated 28 March)
Oscar Arnulfo Romero y Goldamez, Archbishop of El Salvador, was assassinated in 1980, a man whom John Paul II described as a 'zealous pastor who gave his life for his flock'. His recent beatification has drawn new attention to the gap between public perception and reality regarding this popular but controverted figure in El Salvador's turbulent history. The first feature film from the Paulist Fathers' moviemaking division, John Duigan's Romero tells the true story of Latin America's best-known and most revered modern martyr. The film and reflections will be facilitated by Marie Biddle, rsj and Michael Whelan SM. 10 am on 27th and 6pm on 28th. More information and registration

Sydney Ideas, Sydney University: Moving to a Gender-Equal World

27 March 2019
What are the pathways to cultural change? Join Vice-Chancellor Dr Michael Spence, leading gender equality advocate Elizabeth Broderick and ABC journalist Sarah Ferguson as they share insights into how society can successfully embed cultural change into our daily lives and workplaces. In the last two years, women and men across the world have united to forge a new path to a gender-equal world. The high-profile rise of movements such #metoo has punctuated global protests against sexual violence. In January this year millions of women in India joined hands to form an extraordinary 619-kilometre wall of protest to champion gender equality in that country. These large-scale actions initiate cultural change on a large scale, and are incredibly powerful, but how can we each play our part in achieving sustained cultural change? What is the process for getting to that point? 6–7:30pm. More information and registration

Aquinas Academy. Course—Mysticism: Plain or Flavoured?

7 May 2019 (continues over 4 weeks)
What exactly is meant by 'mysticism' and 'mystics'? Often the words are associated with special people having special experiences of the divine. Alternatively, what did Karl Rahner SJ mean when he said over 50 years ago that 'the Christian of tomorrow will either be a mystic—someone who has "experienced" something—or nothing at all'? This four-week seminar considers these two questions. The first week taps our Christian tradition about a proper understanding of mysticism and mystics. The next three weeks, using passages from their writings, explores what we can learn from two 20th century authors about mysticism and the presence of God at work in their lives. Led by Thomas Ryan SM PhD. More information and registration
