An annual event, St. John's staff and administrators are invited to spend their lunch hour learning about the life of St. Louise de Marillac. This year's offering, "St. Louise - A Prophet Unaware," will feature Sr. Elizabeth Greim, D.C. and will include discussion with participants. Some prophets are unaware of their calling. They do not recognize their gifts and do not respond fully to the grace of God in their lives. We might number St. Louise de Marillac among these figures. Though with significant talents, her attention was caught up in other matters and focused inwards. When finally ready, she found herself converted by the Gospel and by a mission. She discovered her significant role in the lives of her companions and a summons to serve her marginalized sisters and brothers—a prophet unaware.  In our time together at this conference, Sister Elizabeth will invite us to join Louise on part of her life journey and (perhaps) hear the call of the prophet in our own ministries.
