Sister Simone Campbell of “Nuns on the Bus” speaking at Regis on Thursday, March 6, sponsored by “Sacred Threads”March 4, 2014
NEWTON - Sacred Threads will bring the compelling Sister Simone Campbell to greater Boston as the last speaker in their series “Threads of Inclusion: Recognizing the Sacred in our Lives through Dignity, Grace and Justice.” The public is invited to attend Thursday, March 6, 2014 from 7:30-9:00pm at Regis College Fine Arts Center, 235 Wellesley Street in Weston, MA. Tickets ($35) are for sale at www.sacredthreadscenter.org. Member discount available.
Naming our spiritual hunger for justice and our need for community, Sister Simone Campbell’s discussion may challenge us to share our bread with those who are hungry, shelter the homeless, and not turn our backs on people in need, labeling these as spiritual practices for the 21st century.
Campbell is an instrumental and savvy media source on the issues of justice and peace through economic and social transformation. She’s been featured on The Colbert Report, Hardball with Chris Matthews, Moyers & Company and PBS opposing the Rep. Ryan’s budget cuts with her Nuns on the Bus tour in 2012 and in 2013 for immigration reform. Her now famous "nuns letter" supporting healthcare reform led to an invitation by the President to see the Affordable Care Act signed into law.
As Executive Director of NETWORK, Campbell leads the cause to educate, organize and lobby in Washington on issues of peace-building, immigration reform, healthcare and economic justice. She’s a dynamic religious leader, attorney, and poet advocating for systemic change.
Sacred Threads is a non-profit organization providing opportunities to explore and enrich the spiritual journey for people of all faith traditions. With a main focus on women’s spirituality, the broader mission is to create and strengthen the sacred threads that connect us all. More information can be found at www.sacredthreadscenter.org.
