Fr. Steven J. McMichael, a Conventual Franciscan, is an Associate Professor in the Theology Department at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul. His interests include Franciscan studies and interreligious dialogue. He is currently researching and writing on the topic of the Resurrection of Jesus and the role of Mary Magdalene.
Everyone at Risen Savior knows Fr. Steve as guest presider and loves him for his friendly, outgoing personality and his rich and engaging homilies. Join him for this special faith enrichment opportunity:
What happened in the Garden? Mary Magdalene's journey of faith led her to the encounter with the Risen Christ on Easter Sunday morning. Her life of penance, discipleship, and ardent longing for love for Jesus prepared her for this encounter. Based on medieval Franciscan art and spirituality, the retreat will offer a reflection on Mary Magdalene as a model of faith, hope, and love.
The cost is $35/person and includes a light breakfast and a lunch, catered by Sally Johnson Catering. The lunch menu consists of: Champagne Chicken, Wild Rice Medley, Fresh Lettuce Greens and Spinach Salad with Mandarin Orange Slices and Poppy Seed Dressing, and Raspberry Sorbet with Vanilla Wafer for dessert.
Sign up online NOW. You may also stop at the parish office during office hours to register. After Mass sign-ups will be held on January 26/27 and February 9/10, 2019.
