Letter From Our Director

As we live into this Easter Season we have good reason to rejoice; even though the weather has a hard time remembering it’s Spring, we can make sure it’s Spring in our hearts.  As you can see, we have a surprise for you with an updated website.  Our thanks to Greg Koorhan and his team from Crossbow Studio who were our consultants and to Julia Keegan OSF, our webmaster, whose deep spirituality, creative juices and persevering mind makes our Website an enriching experience.

Our longer retreats begin in May and go throughout the summer into August.  We’re also gearing up for the MiniSabbath Program which will occur in the month of July.  This year Sr. Clare D’Auria will introduce the time with a day on Sabbath Spirituality and another on Sabbath Time.  Brother Michael Laratonda FMS will be leading the minisabbath again this year.
Something new is beginning at the Center this Spring.  For a number of years we have had the monthly Women’s Awareness Salon: Seeing the Sacred in the Ordinary led by Marge Richards and Renee Eells, two of our Board Members and it continues to grow month by month.  This Spring we have the addition of a Men’s Spirituality Group which will be meeting bi-monthly and will be led by Fritz Haas, another one of Spiritual Center Board Members.

We remain grateful to each of you for your support of the Franciscan Spiritual Center.  Thanks for all that you are!

Rooted in the Gospel...We welcome all as sister and brother.
