What?   “St. Francis of Assisi: A Sign of Contradiction”, a 70 minute film presentation
When?    Sunday, March 3, 2PM
Where?   In Delaney Hall
As Lent approaches, what better way to prepare than to learn about and be inspired by the life of “a real person with real struggles, temptations and doubts.  When all the world saw him as a fool, he stood as a sign of contradiction.  Francis, like us, searched for purpose and meaning.  It wasn’t until he encountered Christ, that darkness and confusion were replaced with light and peace.”
Join us as we seek direction for the season.  Come and bring a friend.  All are welcome.  Refreshments will be served!
