Tomb Time to Easter Joy
What is opening up within us? As Spring blooms around us and the Church celebrates the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead, from what tomb-places are we being called back into the light and warmth of renewed life? Transformation often happens in the dark of the tomb-times of our lives, and we emerge with new strength when the time is right. In what ways can we, like Mary Magdalene and the apostles, be witnesses to the Resurrection in our own lives, birthed by God’s grace and transforming love? On this Easter week we gather to celebrate this holy season together and explore the dyings and risings of the Paschal Mystery in our own journeys of faith. We are reminded that wherever we are on the journey, God is with us and for us, and desires for us to experience new life in Christ.
Amy Kulesa will lead this Friends Day of Prayer. 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 month. Amy will give a morning presentation based on the theme above, there will be time for Mass in the chapel, a delicious lunch, and an afternoon presentation. Free time will be offered to walk the labyrinth, spend quiet time in prayer or shop in the bookstore.
