Presenter: WIll Broussard, Education Coordinator, Mount Washington Observatory
Coordinator: Judy Smith, Deacon, Calumet Staff
This mid week adult retreat will focus on the life and teachings of Francis of Assisi, an extraordinary figure who has broken through denominational and cultural boundaries. Pastor Longworth is a brother in the Order of Ecumenical Franciscans who will share with us the background and spiritual life of St Francis. In his life story, we will encounter St Francis whose response to the world of the thirteenth century gives shape and motivation to our response to the world of the twenty-first century!
Often St. Francis is depicted with his hands outstretched to the birds of the air...for that reason, we will take time to learn about local birds with expert Will Broussard who will offer an evening presentation on local birds and then offer a bird walk to indentify, count and even call birds to us!
For program content questions, please contact Judy Smith, Director of Family and Adult Ministries.
