Hospitality as the Heart of Renewal: An Evening Retreat

Come join us on Tuesday evening, OCtober 18 at the Spiritual Center of Maria Stein from 7:00-9:00 pm.

This evening is for all parish leaders and others interested in fostering an evangelizing heart.  Hospitality flows from a heart that knows God’s radical and unconditional love.  That heart needs ongoing nourishment so that love and joy will be evident in service and welcome.

Join us as we pray and reflect on the moments when Jesus welcomed us through the undeserved kindness and hospitality of our fellow human beings.

Come and learn how to use this process in your parish to awaken the hearts of others to the joy and love within them that is longing for release.

Call 937-498-1192 or 419-925-4522 to register.
