Philadelphia, PA and New York, NY – Brothers Joe Scheiter (Anselm Hall) and Bill Johnson (LSA Community) participated in “Reframing Retirement for Mission,” a three-week program sponsored by the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago that addressed contemporary ideas concerning aging and retirement. The topics included the spirituality of aging, life transitions, theological updating, and the arts.
It consisted of a series of talks via Zoom held four mornings a week for four weeks in June. It was a major commitment of time, but both Bill and Joe, as well as a former-FSC, Paul Fantetti, found it to be beneficial.
Even though it was online, participants were encouraged to join others in smaller reflection groups. Its principal aim was to help those who participated realize that no matter what our current situation is we really never retire.
