Auckland Community Day Sept 21 2024

Theme: Julian of Norwich

St Mary’s Catholic Church Hall

52 East Street, Papakura

10am – 2.30pm

Julian of Norwich (c. 1343 – 1416), was an English anchoress of the Middle Ages. Her writings, now known as Revelations of Divine Love, are the earliest surviving English language works by a woman. They are also the only surviving English language works by an anchoress. Julian lived in permanent seclusion as an anchoress in her cell, which was attached to St Julian’s church. She is now recognised as one of England’s most important mystics equating divine love with motherly love.

Rotorua meditator Cat Jehly will introduce us to Mother Julian and her writings.
Cat has a Catholic background and in recent years has been meditating within the Thai Forest Buddhist tradition. She is interested in what Christian
contemplatives and mystics teach us about prayer, life and opening up to the
spiritual path.
