Parish Lenten Retreat

Dear Friends,

I would like to invite you to be part of our Parish Lenten Retreat for 2018.  This will take place on Saturday Morning, February 17, at St. Vincent Ferrer.  In Lent we seek discipline, and perhaps our cultural and political life can point us toward a discipline that is apt for our times, conversation.  Can we rediscover the discipline of listening to someone, listening with every sense?  How do we make people safe to speak their minds and then truly entertain what they have said?

In the end, the life of our church and our nation has developed through conversation, and so this artful practice becomes a way for our church to witness to our age.
