Virtual Reading Group: Marriage: The Mystery of Faithful Love

A two week reading group through the Marriage: The Mystery of Faithful Love with Catherine Yanko.

Meetings will take place through Zoom over the course of two consecutive Fridays (Dec 10 & Dec 17) from 3:00 - 4:00 PM ET.


Virtual Format

All meetings will be conducted live in Zoom. Links for each session will be sent out ahead of time.

To allow for rich discussion, the group is limited in size to a maximum of 20 participants. Once the group is full, additional registrations will be placed on a waitlist.

All participants are expected to have a copy of the text and to come prepared to each session having done the weekly reading (15-45 pages per week). The weekly reading schedule is available on the right-hand sidebar.


Reading groups are free to attend.

If you are able, we invite you to make a donation to help defray the costs of organizing (reading groups cost the Hildebrand Project ~$900 for a four-week group). We are committed to making reading groups accessible to all; therefore, participation is not contingent on a donation.

Your gift support this reading group, our publications, web resources, and other events, all of which contribute to bringing the vital, life-giving witness of personalist philosophy into new and uncertain times.
