The Art and Heart of the Spiritual Journey

St. Francis Hall, St. Francis Convent


Father Albert Hasse, OFMThe 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.

The Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls, Minnesota, is a community of Catholic women religious who follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ, walking in the footsteps of Saints Francis and Clare of Assisi. We believe that the living of a poor, simple and prayerful community life is a ministry of presence and witness. Our doors are open to the public to celebrate Mass in Sacred Heart Chapel and to benefit from the St. Francis Music Center and St. Francis Health & Recreation Center. We welcome those who wish to join us as sisters, associates, volunteers, transfer sisters, friends and donors.
