Franciscan Life is Living Gospel

Sunday, October 7, 2018  |  2-4 p.m.  |  Free-Will Offering 

St. Francis heard, chose, embodied, preached and lived the Gospels.  At the beginning of his converted life, Francis chose three Gospel passages as his “Rule.” Throughout his life he lived the Gospel message of poverty and the relationship to the poor and those persons on the margins. Brotherhood was the unspoken witness to Gospel values. At the stigmata experience, three times the Passion Gospels were revealed. As he was dying, he requested that the Gospel account of the Last Supper be read. This event will help participants come to a deeper appreciation of the link between Gospel Living and Franciscan Living. There will be a presentation, activities and conversation.  (Traditionally, St. Anthony’s offers a free program around the Transitus of St. Francis for local Franciscans and those interested in Franciscan spirituality to gather and learn more about his life and charism.)

Presented by Sr. Jolynn Brehm, FSPA. 

RSVP requested to the Front Office (715-443-2236).
