July 10 (7 p.m.) – July 16 (noon), 2015
St. Francis Hall, St. Francis Convent
The Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls invite you to join them for the retreat entitled, The Wisdom of St. Francis of Assisi: A Great Way of Perceiving and Living Life in the 21st Century, on Friday, July 10 (7p.m.) – Thursday, July 16 (12 noon), 2015, at St. Francis Convent, Little Falls.
Sister Kathy Warren, retreat director, will lead us through some of the writings of Francis of Assisi in order to discover an ageless wisdom for our contemporary challenges. What might the wisdom of Francis, the 13th century follower of Christ, have to say to the questions we live with in the 21st century? What light might the writings of this “new fool for Christ” shed on the pressing issues of our lives today – as family members, community members and global citizens? How does this soldier turned peacemaker speak to the challenges confronting our world today? These are some of the challenging questions we will work toward answering. We invite you to join us as we seek the timeless insights of St. Francis of Assisi and apply that wisdom to our daily lives here in this time and place in history.
