Diocese of Missouri invites you to a special event:


Three Women Mystics: Their Lives & Divine Lovestyles

Exploring Devotional Intimacy with Thérèsa, Julian & Mechthild


Saturday, April 27, 2024

9 a.m. - 1 p.m.


Mercy Conference & Retreat Center

2039 N. Geyer Rd., St. Louis, MO 63131


These 4-hours will offer seekers an introduction to a rainbow of religious women:


Thérèse of Lisieux (“the Little Flower,” France, 1873-1897), Julian of Norwich (England, 1342-c.1416), and Mechthild of Magdeburg (Germany, c.1207-c.1282) share more than one might expect.


After learning of their lives and main tenets, the group will playfully match writings with authors to discern their similarities and differences.


To meet the needs of various temperaments, our engagement time with mystical texts will offer opportunity and prompts for creative response or further study, alone, with a partner, or in a small group — with a final gathering for debriefing, sharing as desired, discussion, and a mystic-inspired prayer.


The Rev. Dr. Emily Hillquist Davis and Sabine McDowell will host the event presented by Confluence: A Center for Spirituality.
