Dinner Theater Comes to Holy Wisdom Monastery

I’m pleased to announce a new event this year — Dinner with the Other Disciples — a fundraiser to benefit the sisters’ ministries at Holy Wisdom Monastery.

The event came together near the end of last year. One of our fans and supporters, Mary Zaborski, brought a group of women from all over Wisconsin here on retreat for several days. The sisters enjoyed their camaraderie that week at meals and during prayer. The group had several artistic talents they wanted to share with the monastery.

One of the gifts comes from Geri Luer, who is directing Dinner with the Other Disciples. She is writing a script with Mary Weber and Joan Retzack. They are recruiting actors and actresses to explore the lives of several disciples, including John the Baptist, Mary Magdalene, Mary and Martha of Bethany, Nicodemus, Paul, Tabitha and Timothy. The meal will be biblically-themed, and prepared by our monastery chef, Barbara Wright.

I hope that this is a welcomed addition to events that Holy Wisdom Monastery offers during the year. It will be an opportunity to explore scripturally-based characters, and to share an entertaining meal with others. Tickets are $40 per person ($20 tax-deductible) with all proceeds benefitting the sisters’ ministries. Space is limited to about 135 in our guest dining room, so please sign up early!
