The final transition retreat for the Syracuse community of FrancisCorps is going really well. Through a variety of activities the volunteers are getting a chance to reflect on their experience of community, prayer and service. They are telling their story and preparing themselves for the next part of their journey.
The retreat is being led by Friar Rick, Sr. Caryn and Jordan Differding. We are having some great sharing, good meals and lots of time to be together. It’s pretty warm up here at Alverna Heights, but it is an awesome place to have retreat. We are so grateful to Sr. Margaret Patrick and the Sisters of St. Francis for the hospitality they show us.
The tears will certainly flow tomorrow as the retreat ends in the afternoon with a celebration of the Eucharist and a process for celebrating one another and saying goodbye. Please pray for us as we bring to an end FrancisCorps 13.
