Advent Day of Reflection

December 9, 2014

St. Francis Hall, St. Francis Convent


The Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls extend an open invitation for you to participate in “Kindle the Fire; Illumine the Night: An Advent Day of Reflection with Brother Fire,” on Saturday, December 6, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., in St. Francis Hall at St. Francis Convent, Little Falls.

Through a series of brief reflections, participants will explore how Francis’s encounters with Brother Fire illuminate a path of spiritual transformation. This is the illumination that the season of Advent seeks to enkindle so we can embrace the great mystery of the incarnation. Presenter David Liedle has a deep passion for Saint Francis of Assisi and for helping people live into the fullness of their spiritual life. Liedle has ministered as a retreat director and community leader. He founded the Center for Art and Contemplation and is a respected spiritual director and an animated retreat facilitator.
