In place of our February GNSH Associates Zoom meeting, Associates and Sisters were invited to a virtual Lenten Retreat, made available via Zoom and by phone. Entitled Live the Lent You Get, the retreat was facilitated by Christine Eberle. Her contact information can be found at www.christine-marie-eberle.com. Christine incorporated St. Marguerite’s spirituality into her reflections and included stories from her own spiritual journey and experiences in college campus ministry. Whole group and small breakout sessions consisted of reflection time and faith-sharing. Participants were appreciative of the opportunities to experience time together and to prepare themselves for Lent. Eighteen Associates, 20 Sisters, and three guests (discerning Associateship) from various geographic locations were present.
New offerings for Lent have been added to the Spiritual Animation page of our website. There are 3 new YouTube links for Lent and some additional daily and weekly Lenten Reflections to choose from. The new offerings are from Joan Chittister, OSB; Margaret Silf, James Martin, SJ, and others. An additional retreat center has been added, Francis House of Prayer, which has one- day and monthly retreat offerings. For additional information on these and other events click to find more here>>
