Sundays at the Woods: Feasting on Forgiveness
Join the Sisters of Providence from 1:30-3:30 p.m., on Sunday, March 1, for Sundays at the Woods: Feasting on Forgiveness.
The retreat experience will take place in the Foley Room at Providence Spirituality & Conference Center.
Come out to the Woods and explore forgiveness with facilitator Sister Connie Kramer. You will experience a sacred space and be given time to reflect on forgiveness, a gift from God to all people.
“I believe that forgiveness is a gift from God, to us, for us and through us,” Sister Connie said. “It is difficult to forgive because forgiveness requires that we choose to let go of a different or a better yesterday and not stay stuck in the past.”
Sister Connie added that the art of forgiving is a “life-long process.”
“It does not change the past, but it sure can change the future,” she said. “And it is only through suffering that a person learns the necessity of forgiveness which is a possibility because we are good people who sin and not sinful people.
“The process of forgiveness involves letting go, willingness and opening the heart. It is important to learn the art of forgiveness because as Pope Francis has said, it is ‘the yardstick we use for understanding and forgiving others will measure the forgiveness we receive.’”
There is no cost to attend, but freewill donations will be accepted.
