Explore the Franciscan view of Christmas

Program, light meal Nov. 24 at Our Lady of Lourdes

Posted: November 12, 2013 - 6:02pm

Looking for something this Christmas that is a little deeper than presents and parties?

Explore the distinctively Franciscan view of Christmas. St. Francis of Assisi and his followers have a deep love and appreciation of how the Nativity of Jesus reveals so much about God and us.

Participants will engage the gospel passages dealing with the birth of Jesus and the implications of the incarnation. The sessions will be led by Franciscan Associates from Little Falls who hold advanced theological degrees.

The session will be held at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish Hall, Pine River, on Sunday, Nov. 24, from 3-5:30 p.m. with a light meal following the program.

Call Thais at the Our Lady of Lourdes church office Monday-Friday from 9-11 a.m. at 218-587-3874 for more information. Freewill offering will be accepted.
