Celebrating our Patron Saints: St. Francis

October 4, 2022 @ 12:00 pm 2:30 pm

Lunch ‘n Learn: In-Person begins with lunch at noon; Presentation begins at 1 pm

Sometimes we are so familiar with something that it becomes mundane and void of its importance and significance. This can be especially true in much of our faith practices, including our Patron Saints.  Let us take some time to step back, retreat if you will, to reflect on and ponder our Patron Saints of St. Anthony’s Spirituality Center.

Our time together begins with breaking bread at noon lunch. After lunch, our session will offer us time to learn about and reflect on these saints’ lives and how we might be called to emulate them today.

In our final session in this series, we will explore the life of St. Francis of Assisi.

Our beloved Francis is the inspiration of our Holy Father Pope Francis and whose example we desperately need today. Too often when one hears ‘St. Francis of Assisi’ we envision Francis with various animals and critters in nature perhaps talking to Brother Sun or Sister Moon. But his conversion of heart and convictions to follow Christ in poverty, for one example, was an extremely radical and head-scratching idea then and even more so now. Imagine yourself, desiring to be one with Jesus and live out the Gospel so wholly and completely, that you literally sell and/or give away everything you have and own. Every last thing. You not only are now living in poverty but also in insecurity and completely dependent on the providence of God and others’ charity. This is at the heart of our Francis. Share some time with us delving into Francis’ “all-or-nothing” approach to following Christ and being open to how the Holy Spirit calls each of us to our own unique way to follow Christ today.

To register, call 715-443-2236, e-mail with your name and phone number. Please also whether you would like to attend in person or via zoom.
