‘It is our humble conviction that the divine and human meet … in the seamless garment of God’s creation.’ Pope Francis
This retreat will explore the world as a ‘sacrament of communion’ from the perspective of personal and planetary healing.
The retreat is divided into two parts:
Part 1: Sister Marya Grathwohl, OSF (Sisters of St Francis of Oldenburg, IN)
will present Tuesday, June 14 (6:30 pm) – Friday, June 17 (Noon)
“We are created in God’s Goodness.” Participants will prayerfully and playfully ponder themes of Creation Spirituality (And God saw that it was good!) and Cosmology (Nothing is itself without everything else, Universe is a communion of subjects, not a collection of objects,
and Earth is primary, humanity is derivative.)
Part 2: Father Joseph Nassal, CPPS will present Friday, June 17 (3:00 pm) – Sunday, June 19 (Noon)
Drawing upon the insights and wisdom of Laudato Si, the participants will reflect o n the communal act of reconciliation that reflects our commitment to care for the earth and each other. In the shelter of each other’s compassion, in the challenge of each other’s witness, we strive to be good stewards of creation and bring healing to our earth, ourselves and each other.
