This day of prayer and reflection will be devoted to listening to scripture, creation, and our own rhythms of life to appreciate the wisdom God has revealed there. We offer short presentations, a selection of scripture passages, and time for personal reflection.
~People are invited to come early or stay late as they desire.~
Presenters: Fr. Paul Gallagher, OFM, & Sr. Marlene Geppert, OSF
Fr. Paul’s journey as a Franciscan began over 40 years ago when he went to the seminary to “give it a try.” He has grown to appreciate how God was present to him in the unfolding of life. He feels honored to be part of others’ journey with God. He feels called to look at his own life, others, and the world around him from God’s desire & perspective.
Sister Marlene is a Franciscan Sister of Our Lady of Perpetual Help from Saint Louis. She has shared the charism of her community to be a prayerful woman of faith & courage with many people in retreat ministry. She delights in nature and enjoys reading, walking, solitude time and celebrations.
