he Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls invite you to join them for a retreat entitled, "Jesus Risen in our Midst: The Spirituality of Resurrection in the Gospel of John," on Monday, August 13 (9:30a.m.) – Friday, August 17 (4p.m.), 2018, at St. Francis Convent, Little Falls.
The retreat will focus on the Gospel of John, chapters 20-21, the Resurrection narrative. We will be concerned primarily with how the bodily Resurrection of Jesus becomes a reality, a personal experience of resurrection and eternal life, in the life of the believer.
Our retreat director is Sister Sandra Schneiders, IHM. In 1968 she was sent to Paris, France where she spent three years earning the Licentiate in Theology from Institut Catholique and studying languages in the summers. Later she went to Rome and earned her doctorate in Sacred Theology from the Gregorian University, specializing in biblical studies with a special interest in the Gospel of John and the theory of Biblical interpretation, and spirituality. After she finished her studies she was professor of New Testament Studies and Spirituality at the Jesuit School of Theology and the Graduate Theological Union (GTU) in Berkeley, CA. She is now professor emerita at GTU, spending most of her time in research, writing, publishing, consulting and lecturing throughout the United States and abroad while continuing to teach in various programs.
