Please pray for our volunteers who will be going on retreat this weekend (Friday morning until Sunday afternoon) at the Alverna Heights in Green Lakes, NY. This retreat is an opportunity to reflect on their experience so far, connect with God and with one another. There will also be a process for developing personal and communal goals and objectives for the rest of the year. Sister Caryn Crook, Jordan Differding and Friar Rick will be presenting on the stages of community development, community life and Franciscan values.
Thank You to our benefactors who make it possible for us to afford this time of reflection and prayer. We will remember you all at our Sunday mass on the weekend.
We will in a special way be remembering our Sisters of St. Francis, whose own Sr. Marianne Cope is being canonized this weekend as well are remembering our Franciscan Friars who serve at the National Shrine of Kateri Tekakwitha in Fonda who whose patron, Kateri is also being canonized at the same liturgy in Rome.
You can find out more about these special events by watching live on Salt + Light TV. They also have a new documentary on Saint Kateri that you will premiere on Oct 21.
