Presented by Anne and Terry Symens-Bucher, and Fr. Ray Bucher, OFM, will be attending the retreat as celebrant for Liturgy, as well as offering the Sacrament of Reconciliation and Spiritual Support. The musician, Jesse Manibusan.
At the end of his life Francis told his followers that he had “found what was his to do” and asked that Christ would teach them “what was theirs to do.” In other words, he hoped that they would find their soul work. Have you found your soul’s work—that which is yours, and only yours to do? The examples of Francis and Clare of Assisi are as relevant, as vital, and as inspiring today as they were 800 years ago. You are invited to weave experiential exercises from the Work that reconnects, ritual, prayer, poetry and song into your own personal yearning to grow into your life’s purpose. This purpose is one in service to life in this time of disconnection, global crisis and unique opportunity.
This is not a lecture-based retreat. We will explore what it means to be a soul, to have a destiny, and to be called to a great adventure in this life. Our goal is to support one another in finding our soul’s work, and, in St. Clare’s words, “to go forward joyfully, confidently, swiftly … believing nothing, agreeing with nothing, that would dissuade you from this purpose.”
