An Afternoon of Reflection
Lent is rapidly approaching and I am struck by my need for this season of the church. We are asked to do something we think we never have time for: slow down and take a journey with and to Jesus in a new and more meaningful way. The slowing down itself can be difficult for us to fathom, much less do. Still, that is what we are called to, and we will need some time to reflect on where we have been and where Jesus is taking us if we are to do it. Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish in Danbury CT would like to give you the opportunity to enter into that reflection. We will be hosting Dan Burke on March 3rd from 2-5 PM in the church Hall for an event called “Afternoon of Reflection.”
*Dan Burke is the President of the Avila Foundation, Executive Director of EWTN’s National Catholic Register, an international speaker, and an award-winning author/editor of more than ten books on Catholic spirituality. He is also the host of Divine Intimacy Radio, a frequent radio and television guest, retreat master, and founder of the award-winning site dedicated to Catholic spirituality, SpiritualDirection.com. Dan lives in Birmingham, Alabama, with his wife and children.
This event is free to the public but donations will be accepted at the door to defray travel costs. There will also be light refreshments provided in the hall after the event. Please consider attending this event. Lent is a beautiful time in the church to take an honest look at our relationship with God and how we can move forward in that relationship. The time to reflect is crucial to this process. You can register online at the following link: https://avila-institute.org/product/afternoon-of-reflection-danbury-ct-march-3-2019/. I hope to see you there. God bless.
