The Widow's Might - A Lenten Retreat

Thursday, March 21st, 12:30-3:30 pm

St. Paul tells us that “it is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35) and generosity leads to greater happiness.  Yet popular culture tells us the exact opposite.  In this retreat we will discuss how material things, because they are limited, cannot give us the fulfillment for which we long.  Through the story of the widow who gave to God all that she had to give, we examine how the true meaning of generosity is to be found in the attitude of our hearts and we will look at some practical and specific ways to cultivate that attitude of generosity.

This retreat includes video segments, group prayer, reflection and discussion. There is no fee however, to ensure there are enough materials, please contact Danette Morris at dmorris@staugustineparish.org if you plan to attend.
