Thursday, October 29, 2020 //  2 PM EST/1 PM CST/12 PM MST/11 AM PST
Facilitator: Scott Cooper, Catholic Charities of Eastern Washington

Topic: Praying from the Edge of the Inside 
Each of us, by the nature of our work, is both part of the institution of the Church and also on the edge of that institution. Our eyes are trained on the signs of the times, in solidarity with our marginalized Sisters and Brothers.

Join Roundtable for prayer drawn from the wisdom of poets to help us care for ourselves at this challengeing time, to affirm our prophetic calling, to allow for grieft, contemplation, and a Spirit-filled vision of the way forward.

Dorothy Day Guild
Charged with forwarding her canonization, the Guild and Roundtable prayed, Hope in Hard Times: A Novena with Dorothy Day from September 16-24. Over the course of its traditional nine days, we “spiritually gathered” (in the words of Pope Francis), invoking Dorothy’s presence and example. On the ninth day, Roundtable members gathered virtually to pray the final reflection and prayer together. Below are the daily reflections, which were shared via email to Roundtable members:
