►”The Well Lived Life: Enhancing the Spiritual Gifts to Live Out the Beatitudes is Good Psychology” A series of talks given on Saturday mornings over the course of Lent will help participants see how God given abilities can be supernaturalized by focusing on the development of the baptismal Gifts of the Holy Spirit. Applying the information received during these talks should enhance both the spiritual and psychological well being of engaged participants. Talks will be given Saturdays at 8 AM in Nacca Hall at the rear of St. Francis Church beginning on February 29th. Each talk will conclude in time to attend 9 AM Daily Mass at St. Francis, which is encouraged. Contact Dcn.
