The Passion as Our Story: Lenten Journeying with the Saints
The culmination of each Lent is realized annually in the passionate suffering of Jesus. But, isn’t it the Passion, by its very nature , that inspires us every step of our Lenten journey?
Join us for an interactive dialogue, where we will explore this rich concept and draw upon the lived experience of the Saints and Mystics, who have observed Lent in powerful and diverse ways over the centuries. During the program, which follows lunch, participants will engage in various opportunities for prayer, responsive writing and faith sharing that invites connection between our individual life stories and that of the Passion of our Lord.
Participants are welcome and encouraged to bring along practices of their patron saints to share during our fruitful time together. A journal is a great companion for this program.
This mini-retreat will begin with lunch and then a presentation and discussion will follow. Guided by Gordon Creamer.
