November is a month we traditionally stop and count our blessings. While taking time for this kind of reflection, it is not unusual to reflect on what we anticipate is yet to come in the future. If you find yourself desiring to grow in your relationship with God or in learning more about Franciscan Spirituality, Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity invite you to consider one of two retreat offerings.
