Mary Rose Marrin, Sister of St. Joseph of Toronto
“The Fruitfulness of Aging”
Sister Mary Rose Marrin is a Sister of St. Joseph of Toronto with a background in teaching, spiritual formation, congregational leadership and parish ministry. She obtained a BA from the University of Toronto, a Masters of Theological Studies from Jesuit Weston, Cambridge MA (now part of Boston College) and certificates in Spiritual Gerontology and Lifelong Faith Development from the Johnson Institute in St. Louis MO. From 2007 to 2012, she was engaged in the initiation and development of programs with “maturing adults” at St. Mary’s Church, Barrie.
The goal of her present work is to raise awareness of the potential for spiritual, personal and emotional growth in the second half of life and to support initiatives in this area. She presents programs on “Continuing Growth in the Second Half of Life” for churches and other groups in the Toronto area.
This presentation will focus on the opportunities and challenges offered through the gift of increased longevity that is a feature of our present reality. In particular it will address the potential for inner growth offered in our maturing years.
