We’ve had an on-going infatuation with heaven that has caused us to ignore Earth and to desecrate the actual places in which we live. That’s no faith I want to be part of. ~ Fred Bahnson
Spend some personal and communal reflection time growing in awareness and responsiveness to the pleas of Pope Francis and other spiritual leaders: to experience God’s presence in creation and to care for our sacred, common home.
You will focus on exploring the three moments of the Laudato Si Retreat, developed by the Global Catholic Climate Movement: 1-Hearing Creation’s Song; 2-Hearing Creation’s Cry; 3-Responding with Hope and Action in our Process of Ecological Conversion. This is based on Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si.
This semi-silent retreat includes ample time in our beautiful natural surroundings to walk the trails and the Labyrinth, and to sit, swim, contemplate, and bond with God in all beings.
Date & Time: Sun., Aug. 4, at 5pm through Sat., Aug. 10 at 11am
(Please note that this is a different ending date than the printed Mariandale brochure has. The retreat ends on Saturday, August 10, at 11 am, not Sunday, August 11, as the brochure states, in error.)
Presenters: Nancy Erts, OP and Carol DeAngelo, SC
Fee: $575 (all inclusive)
