March Franciscan Discernment Retreat Invitation

Desiring to experience Franciscan consecrated life? Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity invite you to consider our March 3-5, 2017, Seeing With the Eyes of St. Francis discernment retreat. Learn more about St. Francis Gospel way of relating to God, the world and each other. Spiritual Director Sister Anne Marie Lom leads on this Lenten Season experience held at our Motherhouse in Manitowoc, WI.

Important to this retreat is time for solitude. Expect to reflect on ways of praying that stirred St. Francis' heart. The stations are one of those ways of getting close to Christ's passion. Franciscan Sister Mary Victoria Masil's paintings of the Way of the Cross will be used to experience this devotion dear to walking in the footsteps of Jesus.
St. Francis identified with our Lord's sufferings to such an extent that he was gifted with the marks of the Passion, the Stigmata. Sister attempted to portray Francis' love by placing him as a figure in each one of the stations.
