Whatever Happened to Hope? – Retreat with Rev. Richard Fragomeni
St. Joseph University, McShain Hall, 5th Floor Haub Executive Center,
333 City Ave., Merion Station
Start Date and Time:
Sunday, April 2 – 6pm
End Date and Time
Sunday, April 2 – 9pm
The human experience of life is filled with both joy and suffering.
Amid this suffering, we may look at the world and wonder, “Whatever happened to hope?”
How do we reclaim the roots of spirituality in times of struggle?
The answer lies within each of us. When we live with the awareness of God’s continual presence in our lives, we are better able to access such answers.
As we prepare for the Paschal feasts of Holy Week, let us gather and engage our highest symbol of hope: The Cross, which reminds us of triumph in the presence of human pain.
This evening retreat and soup supper will teach us to tap into the Lenten journey of purification and enlightenment to clear and open the “eye of the spirit” in each of us. With this new sight, we can learn to see ourselves and our world as God sees: filled with divine love, joy and power.
Be nourished in body, mind and spirit through the guidance of Rev.
Richard Fragomeni—theologian, author and professor of Catholic Theological Union in Chicago.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
