A program presented in partnership with the Franciscan School of Theology
We live in an age filled with troubling signs on the personal, communal, and social levels. Some of us are dealing with physical health or the challenges of caring for a loved one; others are concerned about family life, personal relationships, or handing on the faith to another generation; still others find the global scene of political, social and environmental violence and upheaval troubling, blurring our future hopes and securities. What riches of perspective and practices does the Franciscan tradition bring to our experience? We will both present and discuss, with some guidance also from Pope Francis, the unique and timely approach of the Franciscan spiritual tradition to our contemporary challenges. At the center of the presentation will be the application of the tradition’s unique approach to hope, its understanding of the focal practice of the eucharist, and the centrality of Christ’s own human experience providing food for our contemporary journey.
No fee and no registration. Program will be in the Auditorium.
