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. Although we recommend the overnight option for a more complete retreat experience, we understand that this isn’t always possible for everyone. This commuter option will begin with the opening session at 7pm on Friday. Lunch and dinner on Saturday, as well as lunch on Sunday is included.
