LLL Days

"Learning, Leisure and Legislation," summer community days this week, features four presentations by Sister Dianne Bergant, CSA, a member of the large community of the Sisters of Saint Agnes, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Dianne is a professor of Old Testament Studies at the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago and the author of numerous articles and books in theology and liturgy. She was the editor and writer for the journal Bible Today for many years and most recently published Israel's Story, parts I and II. All four speakers for this year's community gatherings: LLL days, October and April community weekends, and June's community retreat will focus on Scripture: God's Word.

The "leisure" in LLL days features a lunchtime ride on the Victorian Princess, a Mississippi river boat that offers three-hour cruises of Presque Isle Bay and Lake Erie and is docked at the foot of State Street for the summer.
