EXPLORE HEALTHY SPIRITUALITY - In Wonder, Courage, Playfulness & Hope

Presented by Sister Melanie Svoboda, SND

Come aside for one day this Lent to explore four signs of Reality, Spirituality, Wonder, Courage, Playfulness and Hope. Draw closer to God through input sessions, personal reflection time and sharing using scripture, videos, music, poetry and humor. Sister Melanie will gently lead us in our Lenten exploration.
