July 16-21, 2017: “Icon Writing Retreat”
The art of icon writing coincides with the art and practice of prayer. Jody Cole has been leading these Icon Writing retreats here at St. Francis Retreat House for more than five years. Participants will discover the creative power God shares with us as they prayerfully produce an icon to take home and share with their families. Please register soon for this summer retreat. Begins 4:00 PM Sunday/ ends 1:00 PM Friday
October 6-8, 2017: “Living Simply–In the Spirit of St. Francis”
Pope Francis has been calling the Church to live as witnesses of the Gospel message. Witnessing provides a more powerful motivating force for evangelization than words. To evangelize, to make know the life and message of Jesus is our mission. By our way of life, our conduction and compassionate care we reveal the presence of a loving God in our world. Everyone is welcome to participate in this yearly weekend retreat.
