Leaning into Lent: The Posture of Spiritual Renewal
A Lenten Retreat by the Franciscan Sisters of Washington, DC
We know about “doing” Lent through prayer, fasting, and alms giving, but what might Lent be “doing” to us? This Retreat Day invites us to explore and re-imagine the ways God calls us to spiritual renewal and transformation throughout the journey of discipleship.
The day will include two conferences, Eucharistic Liturgy, Reconciliation and Common Prayer, and time for reflection and private prayer.
