Title: “Seeking Wholeness”.
Form: Reflective workshop that would offer time for personal and group sharing.
Content: “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forward” (Soren Kierkegaard). To touch wholeness we must journey within ourselves and encounter both the self that lies beneath the superficial ego and the God in whom our existence is grounded. “The task for humans today is to mature in the ability to love and to contribute to the progress of the world, renewing it in justice and in peace” (Ben.X1V).
February 16th - 20th
Sr. Patricia M. Rumsey
Patricia Rumsey is a Poor Clare nun with an MA and a PhD in Theology from the University of Wales, Lampeter, UK. She has written and published on liturgy and early Irish monasticism and has lectured in England, Ireland and Scandinavia
Title: AN ENCOUNTER WITH FRANCIS AND CLARE - a : : to meet these two saints and hear their message for today.
Form: It would take the form of a retreat, but with time for interaction and sharing for those who wish (some may prefer to be silent - that's fine).
Content: We begin by setting Francis and Clare in their own time and place, and then explore their life experiences to discover their unique spirituality (particularly that of the San Damiano Cross) to see what we can learn from them in our own lives and what will help us in our own pilgrimage to God.
