Join Our Sisters’ March 7 Lenten Retreat
This year, for the first time, the School Sisters of St. Francis are inviting the public to join us in our Lenten Retreat. Please make plans now to attend “By His Wounds We Are Healed” on Saturday, March 7, led by theology scholar Sister Mary Carroll, OSF, PhD, professor emerita at Sacred Heart Seminary and School of Theology.
Sister Mary will help direct our energies to becoming more Christ-like in this holy season, emphasizing the concept of gazing at Christ with spiritual eyes, and being willing to be seen and loved by Christ. Pope Francis describes this surrender in simple and beautifully inspiring words: “I am a sinner upon whom the merciful face of God has looked.”
Throughout the day we will draw on examples of spiritual healing from Catholic authors Dawn Eden Goldstein and Caryll Houselander. We also will view Jesus, the “wounded warrior,” while examining the art of Andrei Rublev, Rembrandt van Rijn, Marc Chagall, and Salvador Dalí.
The retreat fee of $75 includes breakfast and lunch. Space is limited, so participants are encouraged to register well in advance of the February 21 deadline. A printable flyer/registration form is available here. For more information, please contact Donna O’Loughlin at 414-385-5272 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please wait while we gather your results.
