Monday of Holy Week
April 10, 2017
9:30am - 2:00 pm
Cost: $35.00 Includes Lunch

Rev. Louis Bouyer has written: “The Mass of the faithful, the Eucharistic banquet, is a transformation of the Israelites’ religious banquets. It is with the ancient rites that we must begin, then, if we are to explain the Mass, the banquet of reconciliation.”

Join Fr. Ben Berinti, C.PP.S. Dean of the Catholic Center at the University of Central Florida, and Betty Shaw on the Monday of Holy Week as they lead an experiential day of reflection centered upon the two great meals of liberation: the Passover Seder of the Israelites and the Last Supper of Jesus Christ. Both a “Seder demonstration” and Holy Week Eucharist will be celebrated in the course of the retreat day.

Saturday Morning Book Club

Saturday Morning Book Club
May 6th, 2017
Led by Fr. Blase Romano, TOR
Time: 9:30am -11:30am
517ZZ0epZsL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_

We have all attended Mass or other religious services where the person presiding was a bit of a curmudgeon - who wouldn't or couldn't smile even thought those gathered were there to praise and glorify God. Perhaps some of us grew up being taught that God was a joyless judge and anything that happened in church was "very serious business". However, we also believe that Jesus, while being God's Son, was human and experienced all human emotions and senses, including humor.

During our time together, we will explore what sort of humor we might find in the Scriptures and even with the saints! For example, one of the early Church deacons, St. Lawrence, was put to death for not renouncing his faith by being roasted alive on a grill. It's believed he said to the judge, "Turn me over...I'm done on this side!" And just before he died, he said, "It's cooked enough now." Even in the face of martyrdom, St. Lawrence could find a bit of humor in his terrible situation.

Join us for some laughter, joy and humor that is sure to enrich your spiritual life!

This book is our discussion material for our Spring Dates of March 18th and May 6th, but you do not need to attend both sessions to participate.

**This is a free event, though donations are encouraged to help cover the cost of materials.**

A silent retreat guided by Franciscan Fr. Vianney Cunningham, TOR and
Jeanne & Tony Walter, Members of the Secular Franciscan Order.

San Pedro Center offers opportunities for an experience of Franciscan Hermitage deeply rooted in the Franciscan tradition.

Francis would withdraw to a hermitage or place of solitude in order to be with the Lord. In silence he would spend time praying.

After an orientation and talk on the Franciscan way of life on Thursday evening, the retreatant begins two and a half days of silence. Each day begins with Eucharist. The Divine Office is recited communally throughout the day and evening, and personal time with the Lord is spent in rest, personal prayer and enjoyment of the grounds & chapel.

This retreat is limited to eight retreatants and fills up quickly.

The retreat begins at 7:00pm Thursday evening and concludes with 10:00am Mass on Sunday. Please eat dinner prior to arriving Thursday evening.
