Greetings to all!
It’s hard to believe it will be just a few months before readers of Thomas Merton meet at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut for the next General Meeting of the International Thomas Merton Society!
You are encouraged to register for the conference now to avoid any late fees. Just click on the link…
Also, one of our presenters wants to know if anyone plans to drive to Fairfield from the Durham, North Carolina area. He might fly, but would prefer to reduce his carbon footprint by pitching in for gasoline and car pooling. Any takers? Let me know and I’ll put you in contact with him.
Looking forward to seeing you at SHU!
