Care for our Common Home

Holy Wisdom Monastery sponsors a variety of programs each year that are open to the public and to members of the communities at the monastery. These programs come out of the mission to weave prayer, hospitality, justice and care for the earth into a shared way of life.

In 2020 the theme for our programs is Care for Our Common Home, which is especially timely as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day on April 22, 2020.

It the intention that we will explore this theme from the perspective of evolutionary consciousness.

To help you learn what evolutionary consciousness is, we are posting a list of monthly resources on this page. You are encouraged to take advantage of these resources and expand your understanding of our theme for 2020.
