Salesians offer January workshops

Berkeley's Institute of Salesian Studies is offering two workshops in January — one on prayer and The Psalms and another on the New Evangelization that is designed for those who are working during the day.

The first, "The Psalms: The Treasure of Biblical Prayer," runs daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jan. 16-20. Presented by Biblical scholar Rev. Bob Bauer, SDB, it will explore the types of psalms, as well as the theology and spirituality of them. The seminar will also examine the use of the psalms in the Liturgy of the Hours for daily prayer.

The second, "Perspectives on Evangelizing the Young," offers the Salesian approach to the challenge of helping the young and their families discover and rediscover Christ in their lives. Rev. John Roche, SDB, ISS director, is the instructor. Father Roche has taught "Evangelizing a Secular Age" at the Graduate Theological Union for eight years. The workshop will run from 7-9 p.m. Jan. 23-27. Dinner at 6 p.m. is also offered.

The workshops will be at Don Bosco Hall, 1831 Arch St., Berkeley. For more information or to register: http://salesianstudies.org, and click on January Seminars, or contact Sean at info@salesianstudies.org.

Cost of each workshop is $95 per person, or $175 for both if registered before Dec. 20; afterward the cost rises 25 percent to $125 per person for one seminar or $220 for both seminars.
