Presented by Sr. Mary Jo Chaves, OSF & Dorothy Charbonneau
Franciscan Hermitage experience is a silent retreat that provides the opportunity for people of all faith traditions to enter deeply into the presence of Jesus through the spirituality of St. Clare and St. Francis of Assisi. “To sit at the feet of Jesus” is the invitation for each person who participates in this experience. In The Rule for Hermitages written by St. Francis in the fourteenth century, the scripture story of Mary and Martha is central. Franciscan Hermitage Experience uniquely incorporates these roles. The “Marys”, the participants, sit at the feet of Jesus. The “Marthas”, the facilitators, tend to the needs of the participants.
Franciscan Hermitage Experience follows a regular rhythm of eating, prayer and reflection with a special emphasis upon sharing the experience with other participants. Within this framework, the spirituality of Francis and Clare of Assisi is presented through song, scripture, readings and poetry.
