This weekend retreat focuses on the spiritual wisdom of the Franciscan tradition. We will explore the insights of Francis and Clare of Assisi, Bonaventure, and Angela of Foligno, among other Franciscans, each of whom provides us with resources for renewal and prayer during this season of Lent.
The retreat will feature presentations, group discussions and time for personal reflection. Fr. Dan will also celebrate Mass on Saturday and Sunday. Check-in begins at 3pm on Friday. The opening session for the retreat will begin after dinner at on Friday.
