February 17 – Midday Retreat with the Mystics: St. Francis de Sales

On Saturday, February 17, Noon to 3 PM, in St. Catherine’s Church, we’ll continue our Midday Retreat with the Mystics, focusing on St Francis de Sales. We will focus on his Treatise on Divine Love and his rich doctrine of love of God and neighbor, the ecstasy of contemplation and the ecstasy of service.

Fr. Ignatius John Schweitzer, OP will give a conference talk on St Francis de Sales followed by Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and guided meditations from his writings. A social with light refreshments will follow, along with an opportunity to be anointed with St. Elizabeth of the Trinity oil.

Although not necessary, we invite those attending the social to consider bringing a snack or dessert to share. Thanks! For more information, see News & Events at http://www.uppergarden.org/.
