Franciscan Solitude Experience


This experience invites you to “sit at the feet of Jesus” as you enter into solitude, based on the Gospel images of Martha and Mary. Following St. Francis of Assisi’s insights wherein all of your needs are tended to, Franciscan solitude offers an opportunity to be deeply attentive to Jesus while sharing your experience with others who seek peace and quiet in their busy lives.

Date, Time and Cost:

Arrival for this experience is between 6:30 and 7:00 pm on February 17, 2017 and it ends at 11:00 AM on February 20, 2017.  The cost is $220.00.  There is a $50.00 non-refundable deposit.  Your registration is not confirmed until your deposit is received.


Those attending this experience will be residing in the hermitages while meals, etc., will be shared in Clare House.
