The Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls extend an open invitation for you to participate in the retreat, The Art and Heart of the Spiritual Journey, which will be held January 26 (9:30 a.m.) – January 30 (4 p.m.) at St. Francis Convent, Little Falls.
Presenter Franciscan Father Albert Haase, OFM, will base this retreat on his best-selling book and DVD, “Catching Fire, Becoming Flame—A Guide for Spiritual Transformation.” Haase will share how the spiritual journey is the process of being transformed into the image of Christ for the sake of others. Retreatants will focus on the process of transformation and important aspects such as the image of God, resisting temptation, living in the present moment and the challenge of forgiveness. Haase has ministered as a preacher, teacher, spiritual director, missionary and author of eight books on popular spirituality. He is also co-host of Spirit and Life, a radio show on the Relevant Radio Network.

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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
