Franciscan Passages / A Retreat with a Retreat

Fri 4:00pm - 4:50pm

Venue: Front Porch


Type of Experience: Experiential

Content Type: Relax, chat and enjoy together.

Want to do something relaxing and fun? Experience for yourself a favorite practice of St. Francis of Assisi. Following the instructions he crafted (for a Franciscan “hermit” experience), we will gather first as a group of strangers, chat a bit about what makes Francis' hermitage experience unique, then half of us will take on a temporary role as a hermit while the other half of us remain as a group to reflect on his Canticle of Creation. At the halfway point, participants switch roles. This halfway point is punctuated by the sharing of delightful snacks and refreshing drinks (provided free). You’ll leave this hermitage experience with the knowledge of how to replicate it, plus copies and familiarity with of two of his writings. You’ll also get to know one or two fellow participants better. No experience as a hermit necessary. You'll do great! Please join us and be refreshed!
