Latrobe Fellowship – Conversations on Discernment and Vocation

November 1, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Conversations on Discernment and Vocation

Church of the Ascension and St. Agnes

1217 Massachusetts Avenue, NW

How do we know what God desires for our lives? What practices can help us get clearer about our own desire to live lives of meaning and purpose? The practice of “discernment”, listening for the voice of God in our lives, has a long history in the Christian tradition. Join the Latrobe Fellowship as we discuss practices to help us listen for what God might be calling us to do in the church and in the world. Please contact the Rev. Andy Olivo with questions at andrew.olivo@stjohns-dc.org.
