Ash Wednesday Retreat: Jean Vanier and the Wound of Loneliness
Cranaleith Spiritual Center, 13475 Proctor Road, Philadelphia, PA
Start Date and Time:
February 26 @ 10:00 am
End Date and Time
February 26 @ 3:00 pm
As we entrust our hearts to these sacred forty days, we will draw on the insight of philosopher, theologian and humanitarian Jean Vanier, who revealed the gift hidden in vulnerability. We will explore the wisdom he learned through those judged the poorest, “We are desperately, infinitely loved as we are.” We will discover the Holy Spirit living at the center of our world’s wound, offering freedom from our egoism, true joy, and the richness of community.
Mass will be celebrated and ashes distributed as part of the retreat day.
Presenter: Maria DiBello, RSM
Cost: $45 (includes lunch)
