Join us for this event by Anthony Nussmeier, Associate Professor of Italian and Director Italian at the University of Dallas. Initial lessons will introduce readers to the beauty of the epic poem, as well as to the fractious history of Dante’s Italy and his at-times contentious relationship with the institutional Church. Subsequent lessons will explore select canti from the three canticles (books) of the poem: InfernoPurgatory, and Paradise.  Students will consider the role of the saints in Dante’s epic including, among others:  St. Lucy, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Dominic, St. Bernard, and St. Francis of Assisi – as well as their counterparts, the sinners residing in Hell, the obverse of all that is saintly.

Four Tips to Manage Burnout

Richard Collyer, Archdiocesan Mental Health Ministry      415-614-5593
According to the American Institute of Stress, nearly 83 percent of American workers experience work-related stress across the country. This stress causes approximately 1 million employees to miss work every day and can lead to drops in productivity. If left untreated, it can even lead to symptoms of depression and anxiety. This is why it’s vital that you recognize how you are feeling and take time to protect your mental health with self-care. Self-care is an important tool to help manage symptoms of burnout and regain physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional balance.
