  • Conscious Contact Mini via Zoom- February 2021
    February 10, 2021 at 7:00 PM EST
     
    Topic:  Looking for Love/God in All the Right Places
    Presenter: Sister Cathy Cahill, OSF
     
    Recovery literature speaks about "seeking" God. Tonight's mini retreat will examine where we might seek God. Perhaps we overlook the ordinary places because they are so familiar. God is not "out there" someplace, but "right here" in the ordinary events of our lives. This Zoom retreat will explore that idea with a presentation, prayer, time for reflection, and optional discussion.
     
    This mini retreat is for anyone interested in 12 Step Spirituality
     
    $15 or pay what you can afford. All proceeds go to support the work of the Franciscan Center. (no refunds)
    *This retreat will not be recorded*
     
    Once you have registered here, you will receive an email from info@franciscancentertampa.org on January 9th with the Zoom information.
