Charter Living Stones of the Living School for Action and Contemplation

“Be living stones building a spiritual house….” —1 Peter 2:5

The Center for Action and Contemplation and the Rohr Institute are honored to commemorate those who responded to the vision of Fr. Richard Rohr to form a lay seminary in which to teach an alternative orthodoxy, grounded in perennial wisdom and the Christian mystical tradition.

The Living School for Action and Contemplation opened in the year 2013 to fulfill this vision. The entries below are the names of those who chartered and built this theological and spiritual school. They are indeed “living stones building a spiritual house.”

Please remember these faithful people in your prayers for giving the world a place for emancipatory teaching for all ages throughout all ages.
