Every stage of life presents its own challenges which can be integrated and informed by faith. Reading the “signs of the times” reveals the graying of our parishes. How can the Church assist those entering the “wisdom years” with their life challenges? How can the challenges of this stage of life be integrated and informed by faith?
The Marianist Retreat and Conference Center (MRCC) is reaching out to parishes to offer spiritual assistance with the transition into the wisdom years. MRCC is offering a day of recollection and reflection entitled, “ The Spirituality of the Wisdom Years”. The day will be an informative and interactive experience based on Scripture and Tradition, highlighting Mary as our faith model who learns to ponder all things in her heart. This heart pondering moves knowledge to wisdom, uncertainty to acceptance and anxiety to peace. Presenters for the day are: Joanne Bone, Jim Ford, Jane Furey, Julie Hickey, Michael Horn and Dennis Winschel.
What to bring: Lunch and a notebook Tea and lemonade will be provided.
A free-will offering is asked to help cover expenses
