These trips are opportunities to immerse yourself in an experience that will help you to better understand the realities and needs of people with economic, education, cultural and social challenges. Though there are three different trips, all trips will focus on an understanding of Catholic social teaching, a chance to meet people whose lives are dedicated to social justice, an opportunity to encounter people who live in the reality of poverty and homelessness, and also a chance to interact with immigrants. Reflection and prayer are also vital components of the trip. These trips are open to students of all faiths, because diversity in viewpoints allows us all to grow as a community. Register online

«Women at the Well Conference
03/15/2018 (All day) to 03/16/2018 (All day)
An Interdisciplinary Conference
Carroll College in Helena, Montana, a Catholic liberal arts college, is delighted to request paper abstracts and panel/workshop ideas for an interdisciplinary conference titled Women at the Well: Religion, Resilience, and Grace on March 16-17, 2018. The conference, sponsored by members of the Departments of Communication, English, Philosophy, and Theology, is being held in loving memory of Dr. Annette Moran, CSJ--Sister of Saint Joseph, theologian, Flannery O’Connor scholar, poet, and mystic--and our beloved colleague, teacher, and friend. Dr. Moran embodied the virtues of resilience and grace as she lived out her own faith and commitments to her communities.
This conference is an opportunity to explore through scholarship and reflection the role of women in various religious, ministerial, and educational contexts and the challenges and tensions marginalized peoples and cultures experience in these same contexts. How do women (and men) experience power in religious and educational institutions? What does feminine authority look like? How do place and institutional structures affect voice, visibility, and presence of marginalized individuals? If the institutions we inhabit are marked by injustice, how can we operate within these institutions without being complicit? What does it take for marginalized peoples to effect change within religious and educational institutions? Can we find grace in resistance? Can we find grace in anger? Register here
