Sr. Elizabeth Poilievre, FCJ (Via Zoom)
This day is an opportunity to explore and experience fasting as a spiritual exercise. Fasting is one of the three pillars of the Lenten season in the Christian tradition, along with prayer and almsgiving. Through prayer, silence and whatever degree of fasting that you wish to engage in, spend a day entering into this Lenten season and explore fasting (not necessarily from food!) as a means to feed your soul. You may bring whatever snacks you need for your day, beverages provided. This retreat will take place via ZOOM. Please come prepared with a journal, pen and bible.
