Reflection Days: Reverencing hospitality

August 17, 2023 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Another addition to our 150th Anniversary celebration throughout 2023 is a series of Reflection Days with Fr. Xavier Nacke, OSB. These Reflection Days are tied to Benedictine tradition, specifically themed on reverence.

Blessed of God. Blessed by God, our dignity calls us to base our life on the practice of reverence in the various areas of our lives. “The earth has yielded its fruit for God, our God, has blessed us. May God still give us his blessing that all the ends of the earth may revere him.” Ps.67: 7-8.

Our practice of reverence becomes a structure for living. We want to elicit this reverence in our lives by offering opportunities to join with others in discussing selected reading material on this subject.
