The Human & Divine Face of Mercy Lenten Retreat-March 6
“The Human and Divine Face of Mercy,” a Lenten retreat for oblates will be held at Annunciation Monastery, Bismarck, Sunday, March 6, 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Jeannine Saabye, certified spiritual director and associate professor at the University of Mary, will direct this retreat which invites participants to contemplate the Human and Divine face of Mercy in Luke’s parable of the prodigal son and in the Rule of St. Benedict through word, image and silence.
The retreat is open to oblates and anyone seeking to deepen their Lenten experience with a day of prayer and encouragement. Oblates are women and men who associate themselves with a monastery and live according to the Rule of St. Benedict as their lives permit. The Benedictine Sisters of Annunciation Monastery support the oblates in their journey to grow closer to God by offering monthly meetings, educational resources and prayer.
The retreat begins at 10 a.m., followed by a break for Mass at 11 a.m. and lunch in the monastery dining room. The retreat resumes at 1 p.m. until 3 p.m.
No charge. For more information, contact Sister Patricia at (701) 255-1520.
