Jim Krisher will visit St. John the Evangelist School in Clyde Feb. 10 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. to give a presentation titled "Weaving Prayer Into Our Daily Lives."
Krisher’s presentation is the sixth installment of this year’s Family Education Series, which is sponsored by St. John the Evangelist Parish in Clyde and St. Patrick Parish in Savannah. Through this program, notable speakers — usually from within the Diocese of Rochester or its surrounding localities — visit the school to lead adult-education sessions while the parishes’ youngsters gather in the school’s basement for their own faith-formation sessions.
Krisher is the founding director of the Spiritual Renewal Center in Syracuse and is an adjunct professor of religious studies at LeMoyne College in Syracuse. He earned his undergraduate degree in religion from Syracuse University and his master’s in theology from Boston College, and also has studied Christian spirituality and spiritual direction at Creighton University.
He has written a number of articles on spirituality-related topics and is the author of Spiritual Surrender: Yielding Yourself to a Loving God and The Ongoing Work of Jesus: His Mission in Our Lives.
Father Kevin McKenna and Deacon George Dardess will be the featured speakers for the March 9 and April 13 installments of the Family Education Series. Father McKenna is pastor of St. Cecilia Parish in Irondequoit and a past president of the Canon Law Society of America, and Deacon Dardess is deacon at Blessed Sacrament Parish in Rochester and a pioneer in Catholic-Muslim relations. Both Father McKenna and Deacon Dardess have authored several books in their respective areas of expertise.
