The Mother Boniface Spirituality Center will offer two workshops to help participants trace the presence of God in Scripture and in one’s life calling.
“Lectio Divina: Prayerful Reading of the Scriptures” will take place on Sept. 14 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Father Peter Akpunonu will guides attendees to a deeper and more prayerful reading of the Scriptures in a way that is not mere acquisition of knowledge, but hearing the Word of God and immersing oneself in the inspiration of the Holy Spirit at its very source.
The day will include the celebration of Eucharist. The $35 fee includes a noon luncheon. Registration, including a $15 deposit, is due by Sept. 6.
Young women aged 18 and older are invited to attend “Called to Serve,” the center’s 2019 vocational discernment retreat, on Sept. 28 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The gathering will feature prayer, discussion, activities and the chance to address questions about religious life. A $15 donation is requested, which includes breakfast and lunch.
The Mother Boniface Spirituality Center is located at 3501 Solly Avenue in Philadelphia.
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.
