Seminar 2:
Franciscan 'bare feet'
Spirituality: A Quiet Day
in Preparation for Lent

Benedict and spiritual 'roots'
Francis and spiritual 'routes'

In three addresses, we will explore the contemporary relevance of the Benedictine vow of 'stability' as an encouragement to discover God in the ordinary and humdrum routine of life, and Francis' roving bare-footed ministry as a challenge to live simply and to 'touch the earth lightly'.

Time 10.30 am – 3.30 pm
Venue St Peter's Church, Eastern Hill, Melbourne
Cost $32 (concession: $27),   Note: this includes a light lunch.
