Lent: A Sacramental Journey to Easter

February 25, March 4 and 11 — 6:30-7:30 p.m.
St. Francis Hall

The Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls invite the public to attend a special Lenten series entitled, “Lent: A Sacramental Journey to Easter,” by Sister Elise Saggau, OSF. This series will be held on consecutive Wednesday evenings, February 25, March 4 and 11, from 6:30-7:30 p.m., in St. Francis Hall at St. Francis Convent, Little Falls.

The presentations will focus on three fundamental aspects of the Christian life. The first evening’s reflection will be Continual Conversion—Christians entering into a spirit of penitence in preparation for Easter. During Lent we turn more fully toward Divine Mercy revealed in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. The second evening will focus on Baptism, which initiates us into membership in the faith community, the Church. The third and final reflection will focus on the Eucharist, a continual offering of worship to God in which we commit ourselves to Christ’s mission of mercy.

For more information on the Lenten series, or to register, please call (320)632-0668 or email:
