The former Atlantic Formation Conference (AFC) has undergone a “renovation.”
Titled Spirituality of Soil, this retreat is available for download (and print) at http://www.shcj.org/documents/lent‐2013‐soil.pdf
Has illustrations and song suggestion from Jan Novotka and Kathy Sherman.
This material was created to help individuals and/or groups heighten their appreciation of Earth, God's living and acting within it, current threats to our soil, and how we can respond in faith. Each week contains a Lent reading that reminds us about God's gifts of fertile dust, seeds, sheaves, trees. It suggests reflections and actions.
Users are encouraged to adapt this material in any way that facilitates sharing, prayer, and community. (The Ash Wednesday page is an intro to the New Universe Story with the “news” that we are made of stardust!)
Sr. Catherine Powers, CND, will begin her new ministry as Safe Environment Coordinator for the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City effective February 1, 2013.
