GLEANING WISDOM FROM THE JOURNEY – SPIRITUALITY IN OUR RETIREMENT YEARS
1270 Village Drive in Lemont, IL 60439
Wednesday, April 25, 2018
from 11 am to 1 pm
This workshop will be facilitated by
Rev. Kurt Boras and Marge Garbacz
No matter how many degrees we have been awarded or what kind of education we have received, there are some things that only the experience of life can teach us. Those “life discoveries” include discovering our relationship with our God. The ups and downs, the trials and joys of life help form and shape our connection with the Almighty. What can we learn from our life’s journey that maintains, even enhances, our spiritual life in our later years? Father Kurt and Marge will invite participants to explore spirituality in the later years of life through both formal presentation and an interactive sharing of faith stories and experiences.
NOTE: Because Franciscan Village will serve a complimentary lunch as part of our time together, registration is required for this event.
