Journey of Awakening: Franciscan Joyfulness through St. Francis of Assisi’s Iconic Prayers

November 8, 2017 @ 7:15 pm - 9:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 7:15pm on day Second of the month, repeating until November 8, 2017


This two-part, interactive workshop series invites you to experience a Franciscan path to life. We will explore St. Francis of Assisi’s The Peace Prayer (Make Me an Instrument of Peace) and the Canticle of All Creatures as Franciscan examples of complementarity.

Complementarity is a Franciscan principle of life and fertility, presenting the beauty of nature and in our daily lives. We will discover the dynamic relationship of conflicting forces working in creative tension to awaken new life within. The sessions will incorporate prayer, music, journaling, contemplative reflection, mindfulness exercises, and the use of the labyrinth on the grounds at Mariandale to awaken your joyfulness from within.
