Award-Winning Author to Speak in San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO – Catholic nonprofit ministry Pilgrim Center of Hope will host award-winning author Susan Muto, Ph.D., here October 28 during its annual Prayer Brunch benefit event.

Muto is an Aggiornamento Award recipient from the Catholic Library Association. She helped to establish the then-Institute of Formative Spirituality (IFS) at Duquesne University, taught as a full professor in its master’s and doctoral programs, and edited its journals. She is now executive director of the Epiphany Association.

On October 28, Muto will give the keynote address drawing from Doctor of the Church St. Therese of Lisieux’s spiritual teachings, about ‘little ways’ to share and live the Gospel in daily life.

The benefit event will feature a social, brunch, unique Silent Auction including items hand-carried from Catholic holy sites, and opportunities to learn about local Catholic evangelization efforts spearheaded by Pilgrim Center of Hope. The ministry will celebrate its twenty-fifth anniversary in 2018; unique celebrations including relic venerations will be previewed at this year’s Prayer Brunch.

As an expert in spirituality, Susan Muto continues to teach such courses as Meditating with the Masters, Feeding Our Spiritual Hunger, and other courses on an adjunct basis at schools, seminaries, and institutes of higher learning in the United States and abroad. She has co-authored with Reverend Adrian van Kaam a number of books on such foundational facets of human and Christian formation as God’s guidance and stress & spirituality.
