Saturday Sep 15
Mass / Liturgy
A young adult retreat will be lead by Sister M. Anita Holzmer, OSF, from the University of Saint Francis on Saturday, Sept. 15, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Divine Mercy Church, 315 Main St., in Paulding, Ohio.
Our Franciscan Eucharistic Heritage: Francis and Clare of Assisi were at the forefront of the 13th Century revival of Eucharistic devotion in the wake of the Fourth Lateran Council. In our own time we find ourselves in a similar situation historically as we continue to understand and implement the reforms of Vatican II.
In this retreat we will learn about the lives and writings of saints Francis and Clare of Assisi in light of the 13th Century need for religious renewal to discover how their legacy can inform our 21st Century Eucharistic spirituality and practice.
Snacks and lunch will be provided.
Mass will follow this retreat at 6 p.m.
