/ -- Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity offer a series of retreats designed for the special needs and desires of young Catholic women intent on growing in their faith, discerning their vocation and career and/or learning more about how Franciscan Spirituality is lived in today's world.
"Seeing As St. Francis Did" is held March 16-18 at Holy Family Convent in NE Wisconsin and led by Sr. Anne Marie Lom, OSF, who offers discerning insight into St. Francis' writings and charism. "My passion is assisting others in their spiritual journey." reflected Sr. Anne Marie. "I see a lot of similarities between the time of Francis and today's social, economic, political church atmosphere. In each age the church has its own challenges and Francis shows us how to try to continue to make relevant the teachings of Jesus, to live the Gospel."
"For us, perfect joy is Jesus becoming visible in every age. And this is the ground for my hope."
Sr. Anne Marie's experience includes Spiritual Direction. Her Masters in Applied Spirituality, Spiritual Direction/Spirituality is from the University of San Francisco.
Registration is now open for Discernment of Spirits Retreats. Franciscan Sister Jacqueline Spaniola, OSF guides retreatants through St. Ignatius' discernment process and understanding God's will for your life. "St. Ignatius came up with 22 rules that helped him to know when God really was speaking to him" said Sr. Jackie. It is a rigorous, challenging but ultimately enlightening day, designed to enable you to reflect on your life and calling with practical tools informed by a great saints' understanding.
Sr. Jackie has served as a vocation director, religious education and adult faith formation director, and in the religious education department of the Green Bay diocese. Currently she serves as Pastoral Associate Minister at St. Albert Campus Ministry at Michigan Technological University in Houghton in the Marquette diocese.
