Merton 101

If you’re looking for a good primer about the life of Thomas Merton, check out this video from the PBS program, Religion & Ethics Newsweekly.

  • The reporter, Judy Valente, will be making a presentation at our General Meeting in Chicago next June as will filmmaker Morgan Atkinson.
  • Dr. Paul Pearson is the Curator and Archivist at the Thomas Merton Center at Bellarmine University in Louisville. He is also the ITMS Treasurer and Resident Secretary.
  • Brother Paul Quenon of the Abbey of Gethsemani has attended a number of our General Meetings as has Sister Suzanne Zuercher.
  • Mike Brennan is doing a great job serving as our Site Coordinator for the General Meeting.

I hope you make plans to attend as well!

    I just want to express what a privilege it is for our Chicago Chapter – ITMS to host the 12th General Meeting at Loyola’s Lake Shore Campus, which is located on the far north side of Chicago at 1032 W. Sheridan Rd., and looks out upon Lake Michigan. The room accommodations combine simplicity with accessibility in Regis and Simpson Halls, with private rooms and private baths. The dining hall is in Simpson, and the meeting itself will be held just across Sheridan in Mundelein Center, a 14-story Art Deco building. Also, for those who may wish to visit downtown, the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) Red Line Loyola stop is a handy and inexpensive way to travel. We hope you will mark your 2011 calendar for June 9-12 and we look forward to meeting you!
