The Franciscan Sisters of Our Lady of Perpetual Help invite you and your friends to share in the second event in our “Paving Paths for Peace & All Good” series showing how the life of St Francis of Assisi is surprisingly relevant for all of us today.
Our 2019 experience entitled Sharing a Picnic with St Francis and St Clare will teach us to:
• Celebrate special places
• Explore the importance of coming together for a meal
• Look to all of Creation for life’s lessons
St Francis and St Clare, who were both brought up in the Italian town of Assisi in the 13th-century, gathered one day for a picnic that turned in to so much more. Please join our Franciscan Sisters Renita Brummer, Angelita Laws, and Gale Moore, as they examine different aspects of the story of this celebrated gathering and lead in activities to help us apply its lessons to our lives. Please invite your families, neighbors, coworkers and friends!
