Finding Jesus with Saints Francis & Clare Men's and Women's Silent Retreat - July 19-21

St. Francis of Assisi and the beautiful Lady Clare have fascinated the world for centuries.  How can active men and women in the world draw nearer to Our Lord by learning from their Wisdom, imitating their Charity, and finding little ways to embrace their Poverty?  Join Father John Riley and a small band of brothers and sisters as we gather in a silent retreat at the feet of Jesus to consider how to follow Francis and Clare to Christ; in His Crib... and on His Cross.

Retreat cost is $285 and financial assistance may be available.
