2017 Retreat Scottsdale

Forty members of the Order enjoyed the beauty of the Arizona desert and the comfort of the Franciscan Renewal Center during our 2017 Annual Retreat. Our speaker, “Tweedy Sombrero” Navarete, guided us through various life stages, telling personal stories from within her rich Dine’ (Navajo) traditions. She encouraged us to seek our spiritual center, find our own stories, and live into our own traditions without appropriating the traditions of other cultures.
Worship at the retreat was rich and varied under the capable direction of Sr. Alice Kay Lovelace and the leadership of our sisters and brothers. It was refreshing to experience Morning Prayer in an outdoor chapel as we soaked up the desert atmosphere. In addition, we were pleased to observe the Feast of Saint Luke on our patron’s feast day, October 18.
