Lenten Retreat Day – The Seven Last Words
March 4 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm$35
Our tradition has provided us with a number of different ways of thinking about and meditating on the Passion of Jesus. These include the Stations of the Cross, the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary, The Seven Sorrows of Mary, and the Seven Last Words. The Seven Last Words are unique because more than any of the other devotions they take us inside the experience of Jesus. They offer a point of connection between the historical event of the crucifixion of Jesus and our lived experience of the Passion, both in our personal lives and as we see it lived out in the crucified of today, the poor, the oppressed, the sick and the abandoned.
This Retreat Day will begin with morning prayer. Following the presentation on the Seven Last Words, there will be an opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation and Mass.
This retreat day includes lunch.
Presenter: Sister Mary Ann Strain, CP who is Program Director at OLC. She entered the Sisters of the Cross and Passion in 1977 and was professed in 1979. She holds a Masters Degree in Religious Studies from Providence College.
