Sacro Convento in Palo Alto, California

Posted by

Our first full day of the Sacro Convento experience is coming to an end. We are working with Friar Tom Speier, OFM who is leading us through our discovery of Franciscan Spirituality. Our approach as an Order is “story spirituality” and so today we told our “personal stories” in our small groups. It was quite powerful and touching.  The fraternity is very tangible.

The retreat centre here is quite good. The food is great, the location is beautiful. Our conference room and dining room overlook the valley and the mountains near the bay. Breathtaking! During one of the conferences I was watching a hawk soar in the sky.  God is great.
