Six Day Sister Rrtreat: Clare of Assisi, Mirror of the Gospel  

Monday, August 14 - Sunday, August 20, 2017


Retreat Description: This six day retreat for Women Religious will consider the spiritual journey of Clare of Assisi, first woman to write a Rule for Sisters. The retreat will draw heavily from the Letters of Clare to Agnes of Prague as the two women supported one another in keeping alive their visions of religious life that did not conform to current Church norms. The contemplative dimension of Clare's spirituality will be emphasized, together with her understanding of a Gospel life. There will be conferences morning and evening, with late mornings and afternoons free to extended prayer. 


Presenter: Father Stephen Coffey, OSB Cam, a Massachusetts native, is a monk of the Camaldolese Congregation of the Order of St. Benedict, and lives at the Monastery of the Risen Christ in San Luis Obispo, where he is director of Oblates. He is a retreat director, spiritual director, and is involved in other formation ministries at the Hermitage in Big Sur and at San Lorenzo Seminary in Santa Ynez. He is a graduate of St. John's School of Theology in Collegeville, MN and holds degrees in Christian Spirituality from Creighton in Omaha and in Pastoral Leadership from Chaminade in Honolulu.
