Saint Clare Day: Healer and Encourager

Friday, August 11, 2017  |  9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

A day to celebrate the life of St. Clare and the various ways she brought healing and gave encouragement to many persons. She herself was encouraged in her generosity as a young girl in a household where women of nobility gathered. Her determination to live a Gospel lifestyle continued until her death, even during her twenty-nine years of being bed-ridden.

Stories of her gift of healing as well as her letters to Agnes reveal a life of deep spirituality.

This day retreat begins with continental breakfast at 9 a.m. and will conclude by 3 p.m. The cost of $45 includes program fees and a delicious buffet meal. The book store will be open from 12:30-1:30 p.m.
