The Spiritual Directions – Lenten Retreat

Sunday, March 19 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm EDT

Jesus instructs us to eschew judgment. But how do we do that? Jesus commands us to love one another. But how do we do that? We all seek peace in our life. But how do we attain that? We all seek joy. But how do we accomplish that? The Spiritual Directions not only answer each of those questions but is a scripture-based practice for living a life of peace and joy, based in love, and without judgment.

In the Franciscan tradition, this outdoor day of prayer and meditation, of learning and discovery in creation, explores: What is the greatest commandment? and how should we pray? “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.” (Deuteronomy) “You must love your neighbor as yourself.” (Leviticus).

Each participant receives a meditation booklet containing both the reflections and their Bible references.

This day of guided prayer and meditation is in the outdoors on the grounds of Graymoor during Lent – the preparation season for Easter. March weather can vary, so please bring warm apparel and raingear if necessary.
