Friends Day: Fr. Jim McBurney

November 3 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm

relax, reflect, meditate

Nurturing Restless Hearts

What is in your heart? Are you seeking some change of heart? St. Augustine reminds us in his Confessions that “our heart is restless until it rests in you.” Drawing on Scripture and other sources, this day will explore different aspects of a discerning heart: the restless, searching heart, the forgiving heart, the grateful heart. The prophet Joel reminds us “to return to the Lord with our whole heart” (Joel 2:12). Come away this day and be renewed in heart.

Our Friends Day of Prayer retreats are held monthly on the first Wednesday of the month. Everyone is welcome to attend and you can drop into any month. It’s not required to attend every retreat. Everyone will gather for coffee and pastries for the first half hour. Fr. Jim will give a morning presentation, followed by Mass in the chapel, a delicious lunch, and then he will give an afternoon presentation. Free time will be offered to walk the labyrinth, spend quiet time in prayer or shop in the bookstore.

Fr. Jim McBurney, OSA, is a member of the Order of St. Augustine. He has served as both a pastor and parochial vicar in parishes in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and also in Orlando, Florida. He has also served his Augustinian Community as a Vocation Director and Director of Formation. His current ministry consists of offering retreats and days of recollection. He has offered spiritual direction to religious, clergy and laity for 16 years.
