Sag Harbor Merton Circle

All fired up after attending the 13th conference of the International Thomas Merton Society, we’re contemplating a local gathering of those interested in learning more about this fascinating 20th century Christian monk. Held at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield , CT, the conference brought together some 240 attendees. Presentations focused on Merton’s poetry, social conscience, ecumenism, philosophy, contemplative practice and more.
The idea to start a local study group came as we considered the wide interest in Merton’s life and work. Canio’s has already presented several workshops and programs on Merton which were all very well attended.
As 2015 marks the centenary of Merton’s birth, we’ve joined a campaign proposed by the ITMS to develop 100 new local chapters. We’ll meet periodically to read, question and discuss Merton’s work in a convivial atmosphere. Interested in learning more? Contact us for further details.
